This review is from: Sniper One: The Blistering True Story of a British Battle Group Under Siege (Paperback)
I can not express how much i liked this book. As soon as i started reading it i couldn't put it down. Sgt Dan Mills is a solider's solider, who was there to do his job and not get caught up in the political BS that has now permeated into all walks of life now. It is fair to say that when the proverbial hit the fan, Sgt Mills and his boys stood tall and took it. Not only that, but they gave it back and then some.
Sgt Mills writing isn't full of eloquent analogies, but is just straight forward talk about his experiences during his tour in Al Amarah. This engages the reader a lot easier as the experiences he writes about don't need it and would only slow the pace of the book down.
If i ever met Sgt Mills he would def have a pint on me, as what he did, and his fellow troops did is enough to make you bloody proud.
