"A gripping account of special forces at work . . . a tremendous adventure story."-"Daily Telegraph" "The best account yet of the SAS in action."-"Sunday Times"
The first work of non-fiction in twelve years from the bestselling author of Bravo Two Zero and Immediate ActionSee all Product description
Top customer reviews
The book does build upon Immediate Action but it has an underlying and consistent message, one that I unfortunately witnessed in some ex-Falkland paras. Without telling the lay of the book and thereby removing the enjoyment for other readers, what I will say is that the story follows a young trooper meeting "brothers in arms" and what can result from years at the hard edge. Like Andy's first two books; I read this one in under a week (I spend some time at airports!)
The message is simple; the reality of war is hell and those that return can suffer from physical and/or mental injury. Both types of wounds can be very deep and life threatening; the latter is extremely difficult to heal. The book concludes with open emotion and I take my hat (well, beret as an ex-para) to anyone who can put that onto paper.
I liked the way the book was laid out in chronological order.
It was also thought provoking for the reason that it is the first book i have read by a british soldier that brings into the open PTSD, Andy McNabb is right it should not be seen as unsoldierly to admit that you need help.
Well done Andy McNabb
