Product Description

Book Description

Gritty, but witty, description of life and death on the front line in Afghanistan, by the bestselling author of BULLET MAGNET.

Product Description

Now Zad, Afghanistan: a small unit of British soldiers are beseiged on a hilltop, surrounded by Taliban. There is no way out but through ambush country, on roads full of IEDs. In any case, the British have no intention of running: they have promised the local population that they are here to stay. But every day the attacks on their position become more daring, the shells more accurate. It is only a matter of time before someone gets hurt...

This is the gritty but life-affirming story of how Britain's most highly decorated frontline soldier led his men through two tours in Afghanistan. Through rocket strikes and IED attacks, drugs busts, ambushes and full scale battles, Mick Flynn's first priority has always been to get his men out alive. But it is an ambition he can't promise to live up to...

5.0 out of 5 stars Liked it! 26 Oct 2012
By E
Bought this to read on holiday and had finished it by the time we arrived - gripping, personal account of one part of a very intense time on the ground in Afghanistan. Easy to read and hard to put down. Powerful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 19 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fantastic! I've read his earlier book and this is just as good. The professionalism in his soldiering shines through along with his compassion and caring for his troops. A man whose bravery and skills are recognised by all but himself. I hope he writes his memoirs of his army career - that would be a great read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Quite disappointed. 13 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read his first book and really enjoyed it, going through his past life when young, and after joining up, was the usual soldier experience as many others before him. From then on it rattled along at a far pace. Unfortunatly this book wasnt a patch on the his first, and I was grateful for the end of the book, there really didnt seem enough content on what was promised by the first book by him. For such an experienced soldier I expected much more than what was on offer. Pity!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 5 Oct 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Hard hitting well written account of a British soldiers time in Afghanistan. Descriptive, detailed in every aspect and doesn,t pull any punches. The professionalism, teamwork and support for their mates shines through the whole book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read 6 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Mick has again written a spellbinding but down to earth account of life on the front line. He describes life on the front line so well you could be there some of it is definitely squady humour and only really understandable by service personnel! He let's you into that world but unless you've served you don't fully understand! A very good read as is his other work "Bullet Magnet"

4.0 out of 5 stars A great read 6 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I also found this to be a gripping read. Perhaps not quite as 'life journey' as his first one, but I don't begrudge that: I suspect he'd 'shot his wad' on the first one not leaving him so much to say on the second. But still a great and inspiring read and very touching - and indeed heart breaking - in places. Worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 21 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well written and moving accounts of operations in Afghanistan. Really does bring it home to readers just how much those soldiers went through. Nothing but praise for their skill and bravery under such demanding conditions on a daily basis.

More just about Afghanistan, the man is a living legend. Not many 50 year olds on the front line as a combat soldier. Please write another one.

This book nicely picks up where Bullet Magnet left off. There is a little of BM in this, but only a bit, and if you haven't read Mick's 1st book its well worth reading. Read more
