An emotional and honest insight into one mans mind,
This review is from: Freefall (Paperback)
I read this book following the news of Tom Read's tragic death. After all the media attention surrounding this event, the book is a moving read and helps explain the sequence of events and their bizarre conclusion. It also shows a compassionate and personal side not seen in previous books from ex-SAS soldiers.
This is not another "ex-SAS" novel, with more emphasis being placed on Tom's progress through mental illness and flashbacks to his career after joining the army. For anyone that has read Chris Ryan or Andy McNab's books there are interesting references to certain controversial members of the Bravo-two-zero squad - something that has also become a little more prominent in the media recently.
