Product Description

Product Description

Explosive SAS action in East Timor, Iraq and Afghanistan.

The command came: 'Stop those vehicles!'
It was like a red rag to a bull. Instantly streams of 7.62 mm tracer and 50 mm calibre machine gun rounds arced across the night sky and smashed into the bus and truck.

Elite SAS Patrol Commander Stuart 'Nev' Bonner takes us inside the extraordinary and dangerous world of secret combat operations in this explosive, behind-the-scenes look at life inside the SAS. A world where capture means torture or death, and every move is trained for with precision detail to bring elite soldiers to the very peak of fighting ability.

In a career spanning twenty years, fourteen of them in the SAS, Bonner shares with us the inside story of being out in front – and often behind enemy lines.

From patrolling the mountains of East Timor to covert operations in Bougainville and the Solomon Islands, from sweeping into the Iraqi desert ahead of invading US forces to cripple Saddam Hussein's communications to patrolling in war-torn Baghdad and being in the middle of the disastrous Operation Anaconda in Afghanistan – this is a no holds barred account of what it like to live, eat and breathe SAS.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Good 4 May 2014
By Mike - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very poor explanation of what could have been a good story. Lots of professional ex SASR have fully explained "Selection". Despite one of the objectives was to explain the symptoms of PTSD however this was barely covered. There was little explanation of events that occurred in the various wars, just bits and pieces. Not only was the story most unprofessional but the Kindle cost was excessive. I served for many years in Australian Special Forces.

I felt he held back on detail when in the Gulf and Afghanistan , making his story a wee bit underdone.

A sensitive account of PTSD that hopefully helps the ADF sit up and address the issue.
5.0 out of 5 stars An Isiders View Of The Australian SAS 21 May 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not only does the book speak very personally about how and why the man chose to become an SAS soldier but it also highlights the other side of war experience...don't wish too hard for what you want, or you may actually get it, hence part of the book looks at the dark side, coping with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
A must read for anyone contemplating serving with Special Forces
