A stunning account which pulls no punches,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dead Men Risen: The Welsh Guards and the Real Story of Britain's War in Afghanistan (Hardcover)
Just buy this book. It is brutal, poignant, emotive, emotional, funny, sad and stunningly well written. It is without doubt the finest book that I have read (within the last five years) which focuses on the British Army in Afghanistan (I've read over 35 now!). I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone; once you pick it up you will not be able to put it down. Over 500 pages including photos you'll need to go to the gym just to pick it up as it's heavy (in hard back)!! A particularly fine example of such books that recount the brave activities of our troops on the front line in Afghanistan; just don't expect an easy read as, in places, it quite rightly just tells it 'how it is'. . .
