I picked this up as I love real life stories of what special forces and similar actually get up to. This book doesn't disappoint in that regard and the stories come across as honest and authentic. However, to push it on to the next level, the stories and missions recounted who'd have benefitted from more detail and insight to further draw you in. Instead, it can see a bit like it's relying on hearsay but with gaps filled in using the author's experience/imagination to paint the picture.
However, there are some fascinating insights and some great real heroic characters and I've enjoyed reading about them. As said by a previous reviewer, the chapters can be a samey as they follow a similar trend. However, I have found this can also be a strength, as you can finish a chapter and go back into the next one at your leisure when you fancy another chunk of it, so it's good for periodic reading.
Personally, I'd like to have been drawn into the battles/missions a bit more, rather than feeling like I was reading an account, but it's still a good read and respect to the author for all he and his mates encountered, which was pretty darn intense.
