Thoroughly enjoyed this book to and from work and it was devoured in just a few days. Easy to read, informative, funny and very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend for a fan who fancies stringing together threads of the show's history that were woven by people who had no real idea as to what the tapestry would eventually look like.

This book is now deservedly a Sunday Times Bestseller. As someone who hasn't been in the forces I got an amazing view of battle from reading Attack State Red. Most of the time it really felt like I was actually in a war. A lot of books say they are realistic but this one definitely is. I've read a lot of war books and this is by far, far the best. Its like Band of Brothers only better. Read it.
