4.0 out of 5 stars Highy recommended, 12 Dec 2007
I have just finished this after reading it over the last week to and from work. This book gives a good overview of someone who works in bomb disposal and the rigours of a tour in Iraq. From being targeted by the Mahdi army to being taken off the team and promoted to a staff job.
Highly Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read and insight into what can happen to a soldier after war, 2 May 2007
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and read it in a couple of days on my way to and from work. The author tells about his time in the army and what it's like going to war and the after effects. You get a real sense of what it is like when your kit doesn't work and people die as a result, and what it's like to be a young man coming to terms with this. There are some funny parts about his time in green and some tough parts about coming to terms with life out of the army with PTSD.
