Another gripping story from someone who has truely been there and done that, luckily for him he escaped. Bulletproof is a story that many of soldiers and marines have had experiences of, however Matt has put it across his way, the guy on the grounds way.

Gripping stuff from start to finish, good to see that not all authors are portraying themselves as white as snow.

Great book

Matt Croucher is a hero and you only have to read what he did to get his George Cross to know that. He and people like him risk their lives for the sake of us back here and we should be proud of them. The book is brilliant - it shows you what it's like to be on the front line of the wars we are currently fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. This book isn't about the rights and wrongs of those campaigns or overall strategies etc, it's about what's happening on the ground and what our brave soldiers like Matt and his fellow Marines do every day out there. Some of the stories are breathtaking and it's incredible that Matt survived. I for one am glad these stories are being told and am proud to have these guys fighting for my country.

Having done a similar line of work, I find how the action is portrayed in this book ever so slightly far fetched. How he can remember with clarity the actions and reactions from 2003 is amazing! Also the fact that there were no mention of any of his section commanders, 2i/c's or any other of the command structure leaves anyone who "knows" how the military work more than a little sceptical. Strange how he mentions being a rifleman, machine gunner, section commander issuing QBO's and resupplying ammunition (troop Sgts job) all in one and at the same time. Mmmmmm me thinks not. Especially as he was a sprog at the time.

Clearly the guy is worthy of the gong, they don't hand them out to Muppets, but the rest seems to be a result of an over active imagination.

I have to say that the book itself is a decent read and i did enjoy it BUT I have to say that I couldn't take to the author. As an ex-bootneck myself I have met many hero's who would rather not be but this guy seems to be a bit of a glory seeker to be honest.
I liked the book but do feel some parts may be embellished slightly but like I said I did quite enjoy the book and would recomend it

Interesting book, but not as much as other reviews led me to believe. Whilst the author was undoubtably brave, I found him difficult to warm to. The book often has a real 'them and us' feel to it in regards to 'civvies', and it seems inconceivable at times that others may not share his views.

There are other, more enjoyable books on this subject.

Nevertheless, I have complete respect what was achieved.

Gives you a good insight to an amazing character. could recoginise the soldier references all true home to an ex serving soldier. Matt deserved his medals he put his life on the line like so many others and this is story of it.

This book keeps you gripped for page one.
It's written in a way that you can relate to Matthew, he is just a normal guy fighting for his country.
But then you read on and realise how he's put his life on the line on several occasions where others would have ran away.
This guy really does have nine lives.
It's great the way he doesn't try and explain the politics around this war, he's simply telling his story, how he and many other soldiers on the front line see it.
This book shows you what heros are all about and he really deserves the George Cross medal for what he did.
Would definately recommend it for any Christmas present, I'm not normally into war / soldier type books but have thoroughly enjoyed this one. Hopefully he'll bring out another one.

Once you start reading this book it is difficult to put it down.The author mentions that certain situations in his life have left him feeling like he has nine lives but this only scratches the surface.
Each chapter contains different life threatening situations which are all vividly described in a calm and collected manner.
Like me you may have read brief accounts of why this man was awarded the Gerorge Cross for bravery but this book provides a definitive account of how one person can summon the courage and be prepared lay down his own life for his comrades.
