Pete's journey through life is not always going forward, nor always going backward, but filled with the ups and downs we all go through. It is a good commentary on dealing with the system and the pitfalls of bucking that system. "www.mataka.org (June 2010)""

Someone on this review gave the novel three stars because the author only fought in two actions; Mirbat and "a small role" in the Iranian Embassy. Make no mistake, Mirbat is a regimental legend and the Iranian Embassy Siege (however small a part - could there be one?) changed the Regiment's image across the world stage forever. Small part? Two actions? Far from true.
One of the original stories from inside the SAS and still a benchmark for other true (and some untrue) stories.
excitement of soldiering but also the boredoms and frustrations. The descriptions of desperate battles and the storming of
the Iranian Embassy are exhilarating. Problems relating specifically to the soldier, his struggles with civilian life on leaving the army
and with post-combat stress are extremely well handled by Mr. Kennedy. I would recommend this book Soldier `I` to anyone with
an interest in warfare.
More and more ex SAS members are leaping onto the lucrative bandwagon of telling "their story" and almost inevitably, the standards are going to decrease, because it is but a new slant n the same story as related by many others before.
Perhaps the most interesting elements rlate to the composition of the man behind the events, rather than the events themselves..
What a truly amazing story of an SAS Hero. I really am amazed how anyone could make it alive through any of the stories in this book, let alone all of them.
Soldier I is a true SAS Hero. ( 5 stars )
I don't know why I didn't give it a 5, maybe it lacked the extreme tension I am sure the situations deserved, maybe because what us lucky civilians call extreme the SAS call routine, but don't let that out you off. It's a riveting read and I would definitely read it again..
