5.0 out of 5 stars Ross Kemp on Afghanistan - A Review, 20 July 2009
By 
This review is from: Ross Kemp on Afghanistan (Paperback)
Well done to Ross Kemp for having the desire to document the experiences of British troops on the front line. The news often has stories about the conflict out there, but as Ross himself says, he wanted to find out more about the men and women who are out there doing the job they do and to document their daily struggles, successes, hopes and fears. These personal aspects are increasingly less reported in the home press - he notes that it is no longer front page news when a British soldier dies on operations.

The book covers his three visits to Helmand province, on Herricks' 6,8 and 9. As an exercise in comparing and contrasting, it is interesting to note the differences and developments on each tour he visits. His first visit on Herrick 6 describes some pretty basic living conditions that the lads out there have to cope with, through to his time spent on Herrick 9 where he notes some changes in the living conditions out there. Unfortunately for the lads (and Ross)the standard of toilets hasn't noticeably improved!

For anyone with an interest in the military, this book is a good snapshot of contemporary life on operations for the UK soldier. A very good read and I think it well deserves the 5 stars I have awarded it.
