4.0 out of 5 stars not quite gripping but does have that something
not a bad book compiling lofties experience in the regiment,good to read something which is not just the thought up scenarios so many other books offer. especially liked the section in korea in the prisoner of war camp how they toyed with the chinese. well worth a read but not the one of the best in this now flooded market of sas themed books

1.0 out of 5 stars poor attempt by a true hero
lofty large is a true british hero ,the kind who should be rewarded for all his efforts, unfortunatley this book just doesn't cut it , there are two problems; the lack of dates and general detail makes it difficult to follow the story ,he seems to have made no effort to do any research into the stories he tells, if you are happy with his vague personal recollections...

5.0 out of 5 stars A glorious tribute to everyone who has served., 20 Jun 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Soldier Against the Odds: From Infantry to SAS (Hardcover)
This book is a brilliant, unpretentious insight into one man's amazing life in the Army and SAS.
If you want to read the memoirs of someone who has been there and done it all, then read this book.
This is his world, we just live in it.

This review is from: Soldier Against the Odds: From Infantry to SAS (Hardcover)
lofty large is a true british hero ,the kind who should be rewarded for all his efforts, unfortunatley this book just doesn't cut it , there are two problems; the lack of dates and general detail makes it difficult to follow the story ,he seems to have made no effort to do any research into the stories he tells, if you are happy with his vague personal recollections then read this, the other problem is his poor english which makes the book both difficult to understand and also differcult to follow. reading andy macnab or chris ryan will provide more detail and more enjoyment.
