Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Subtitled 'Undercover in Afghanistan', this amazing true story reads like Andy McNab's two non-fiction titles: Immediate Action meets Bravo Two Zero. Mr. Berry was a soldier in the British Army for 12 years. He is a little vague about what he did in the latter years though he says he wasn't in the SAS, his dad was. After leaving the army he did various things but somehow maintained contact with the security services, being given a number of deniable operator tasks leading up to this final one. It is superbly written with the usual soldierly humour and various anecdotes. One is left with the notion that he wrote the book as a sort of revenge against MI6, CIA, et al, who deserted him at his time of greatest need. If you enjoy McNab and his fellow Special Forces authors you will thoroughly enjoy this.

Format: Paperback
An interesting insight into Afghanistan and the work undertaken by certain government agencies to clear up the mess they created when arming rebels during the Soviet invasion. It highlights the lawless state of the country and the hell the author went through while trying to do his work. Allegedly stitched up and left out to dry, the author ends up in an Afghan jail where he is constantly beaten and tortured. A good read, not as fast paced as the likes of Jihad but definitely worth a read.

Format: Paperback
Colin Berry's account of what happened to him while serving as an undercover agent in Afghanistan - and the life that led him there via the SAS - is utterly compelling. For page-turning brilliance this is right up there with the best thrillers you'll ever read and while you're whizzing through it you have to keep reminding yourself that what you're taking in here isn't fiction but fact. Ideal if you want to know more about the underhand nature of modern espionage, the incredibly murky world of middle-eastern politics or, in fact, if you just fancy a cracking read. The perfect bloke book for summer holidays or the daily commute.

Format: Paperback
Good read read with plenty of background, the action for the small amounts that there were I found to be better than other books of a similar genre there was no one man armies
Having worked with Colin recently and knowing the man i understand now why his calm and and unphased attitude is so apparent.After having experienced what is contained within this book
A definite must read and would recommend it whilst only short it packs a punch and makes you question the integrity of certain HM Government departments

This is the tale of an ex-squaddie who goes to work as a private security contractor in pre-invasionary Afghanistan. He gets involved in lots of black ops cleaning up for the Americans, but in the end gets double-crossed by his buddie who is playing both sides. He gets shot and is led into a spell at Kabul central Goal where his life falls into an ever downward spiral. I also lent the book to my mate - he is halfway through and thinks like me it's a great book.

Format: Paperback
A well written account of events in Afghanistan. I found this hard to put down.

The tales of torture and abandonment made you feel for Colin Berry. In places it is shocking to read about the ways one human being can treat another.

Even so, I would definitely recommend this.

Fantastic, interesting and entertaining.
Could not put it down, many books like this are often very interesting but not well writen, this is not the case with this book as the writing flows fantastically and is, like i said, impossible to put down.
