As someone who never had any inkling or want to be a soldier, Ive always had a fascination with guys who have the guts and botlle to sign up, knowing they may have to put their life on the line for their country. This book only increased my adminration for the men, lets face it, some of them are only boys.

We at home have no concept of what its like to be somewhere like Afghanistan, the heat and dust, the constant fear of being shot at or bombed. The book details all this in a great way and explains the technical aspects well.

The action is fast moving and comes across as realistic and heart pounding.

The book is written in the 1st person and i really enjoyed it, I like Alex Green's writing style and would certainly be on the lookout for any future books he writes.

`Zero to Hero' is an infantryman's story about the life of a soldier fighting out in Afghanistan.

It gives an authentic flavour of what it must be like to serve in the British Army during a modern day conflict.

Revengeful insurgents and the Taliban are a constant threat.
IED's can take a soldiers life at any moment and these roadside bombs have caused the majority of coalition casualties in the Afghan war.

I don't have ay military experience myself but I found the book gripping and a credible description of war.

Young Alex Green has produced an outstanding description of life as an ordinary Infantryman both in basic training also on service in the sweltering heat of Afghanistan. In reading this remarkable book, one can smell the hidden dangers of Helmund province and experience the horrors of modern warfare for a young man still in his teens. The final page says it all, "I know the time to recover mentally will take years, and I suspect that the odd nightmare will still happen for the rest of my life". I write this tribute to Alex Green - and his comrades in the Mercian Regiment - as one old enough to be his grandfather who served his two years National Service in the 'Gunners' - followed by twelve years in the TA. Anyone who says that modern young people lead soft, self-indulgent lives should rush out and buy this amazing book. You wont regret it!

I have read a number of books about the conflict in Afghanistan and found this to be one of the most enlightening. It gave a good insight into the horrors experienced by our service personnel engaged in this conflict and, for me, I found it difficult to put it down. A good indication as to how enjoyable this book was. It also confirmed my belief that all personnel returning to normal life, should receive assistance in readjusting.

This is a book written about a soldier's life on the front line in Afghan by the soldier himself.
It gives an amazing in site to life in Afghanistan for soldiers, and is most definitely eye opening.
An absolutely fantastic read.

I've read a few books by soldiers who fought in 'Afgy' but this one is so raw in some details it brought tears to my eyes. But it brings the reality of the war in Afghanistan to life - upsetting though it was in parts. Huge admiration for these guys and a great read.
