Book Description

10 Oct 2013 EDGE - A Rivets Short Story (Book 23)

Did you ever think that a dog could save someone's life? I'm living proof that it can happen. My name's Jamie, and I want to tell you about something that happened to me last summer. You were probably on your school holidays. I was in Afghanistan, fighting the Taliban. I lost my leg doing it. But I can live with that. Because if it wasn't for a brave sniffer dog and his handler, I'd have lost a whole lot more...

Told through the eyes of Jamie, an amputee veteran, WAR DOG is the story of Lance Corporal Sam Maguire, part of a bomb disposal squad in Afghanistan, and the springer spaniel sniffer dog Charlie who becomes his best friend.

Chris Ryan fans: This title is a standalone short story published by Franklin Watts EDGE, which produces a range of books to get children and young adults reading with confidence. EDGE - for books you can't put down.

More About the Author

Chris Ryan was born near Newcastle in 1961. He joined the SAS in 1984. During his ten years there he was involved in overt and covert operations and was also sniper team commander of the anti-terrorist team.

During the Gulf War, Chris Ryan was the only member of an eight-man unit to escape from Iraq, where three colleagues were killed and four captured. It was the longest escape and evasion in the history of the SAS. For this he was awarded the Military Medal.

For his last two years he was selecting and training potential recruits for the SAS. He wrote about his experiences in the bestseller The One That Got Away, which was adapted for screen, and since then has written three other works of non-fiction, fourteen bestselling novels and a series of childrens' books.

His latest series of novels - the Extreme books take you even further into the heart of the mission with more extreme action, more extreme language and more extreme pace. Like Call of Duty or Medal of Honor, you'll feel part of the team.

He lectures in business motivation and security, and is a consultant for a security organisation. You can find out more information on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ChrisRyanBooks. You can also follow Chris on Twitter @exSASChrisRyan

i enjoyed reading about a different aspect of the ongoing conflicts, and have now passed the book to my grandchildren. However, I thought it was fairly expensive for its size.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very limited stories. Poor value even for short stories.It was like reading a trailer for a movie. So much more could have been developed.
