Product description

Review

'At last, a commander telling us the cold, harsh truth about this war. An excellent and compelling read' (Andy McNab)

'A gripping first-hand account of the realities of frontline command at the start of the bitterest war that Britain has fought for generations' (Patrick Bishop, author of 3 PARA)

'Tootal offers the perspective of a man in charge ... he tells the story well ... passionate admiration for his men is matched by disdain for others' (Max Hastings, Sunday Times)

'The first senior commander to provide an account of the fighting, Tootal's book is refreshingly free of the gung-ho machismo and sentimentality that afflicts other lesser entries of the genre' (The Sunday Tribune)

'Gripping account' (Essex Chronicle Series)

'Captures the essence of combat...a gritty portrayal of unforgiving combat'

(East London Enquirer)

Book Description

A compelling and human portrait of modern war
