1.0 out of 5 stars Helmund Assault, 20 Sep 2011
Found this very hard work. Its all strategy and from a senior officer perspective very detailed and if you want a book with this level of operational detail then this is for you. There is little from the marines point of view however and the author has this annoying habit of punctuating the text with a few swear words and unconvincing lines of dialogue from who he calls "The Lads"
Look to Max Hastings on how to do this well.
