1.0 out of 5 stars Awful 7 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase
Avoid this. It was concocted by a fantasist who has trawled through various books about the Regiment to throw this together.

The author is confused about the SAS selection process, and then implies he was put on ops immediately after passing. He refers to Bessbrook Mill in Northern Ireland as Bessborough Barracks. He states that he was one of the SAS team that killed four IRA terrorists at Gibraltar, but cannot remember their names; while in fact three terrorists were shot - McCann, Farrell and Savage. Then it gets worse...

Dreadful stuff, badly researched and poorly written, presented as fact.

Don't waste your time.

1.0 out of 5 stars sas or Walt? 23 Oct. 2014

I don't rate this at all, it's as if the author has read too many stories about the das and picked the ones he likes to make up a book that is full of inaccuracies.

5.0 out of 5 stars I don't do book reviews .... 22 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase
I don't do book reviews........ I read the book and if I liked it I give it up to 5 stars, if I didn't then it gets a 2, if I didn't finish then it's a 1, that's it I'm afraid.

I read it, I like it, I want more from the author.

As with a vast number of Kindle books there might be the odd spelling and punctuation errors.
After reading well over 300 Kindle books of all types and subjects you get use to them and they become less noticeable, unless they effect the story.
