'We are free! We are free!' came the joyful call from all the military survivors of the first pandemic lockdown. 


The General was at her happiest and embraced the sunshine with all her relief...but then, it vanished again, and the brief illusion of hope and freedom was whisked from them...the general feared they would not survive the new lockdown...it was the end of sanity as she knew it...


The Troops are back after the mad cap hilarity of "The General's Log: tales from the lockdown." and they must now up the ante to keep amused during yet another lockdown. They engage in more artillery training, this time using lemons and face masks; they try their hand at making their own snack rations while unsupervised and continue their war on wearing pants. The battle-weary General tries to again navigate the list of house-hold items that could potentially become weapons, and which grows larger by the day.


"A classical styling of absurd situations in an absurd time of reference for any family and told with humility and reality that makes it all the more funny...because its true...Well done Fern, you survived again!" Kate, indiebook reviewer


The Second Tour of Duty is full of highs and lows and hilarious in-betweens of parenting small children while maintaining sanity during a global pandemic. (And we thought the Virus was the worst part...!?)
