Very badly written - does not to justice to the subject matter.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Black Ops: Heroic Tales - key operations from the SAS, SBS, Delta Force Spetnaz, GSG9 and SEALs (1979 - present day) (Afghan Heat Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
I have never before read a book that is so poorly written, with so many spelling and punctuation errors. I wonder if any proof reading took place and what the editor did to justify their fee. The writing style is very stilted and the author must have relied on their word processor's spell checker. After a while the number and nature of the errors becomes funny. As an example 'too Al-Qaeda' instead of 'two Al-Qaeda'. Various references to 'airstrikes', 'air strikes' and 'air-strike's' with an unnecessary apostrophe. A passage describing a DShk machine gun later refers to the same weapon as a 'desk'. Northern Alliance commander Abdul Rashid Dostum is referred to as 'Dostrum' An Exocet missile is also referred to as an 'Exorcet'. The SAS headquarters at Hereford is described at 'Heroford'. I could go........
All in all, the stories themselves are interesting, but the author, editor and proof reader should all consider alternative careers. If I could award this zero stars, I would. I'm glad I only paid £1.85 for this steaming pile of ordure.
