Most of the accounts of Helmand concern the PBI, but here we ride into battle with the cavalry. Providing support from Scimitars and Jackals, dealing with IEDs, handling frequent equipment failures and sometimes getting far too close to the RPG-armed Taliban this has much in common with other accounts but enough difference to make it well worth reading. The author has a pawky sense of humour. Excellent maps, covers two tours by the author.

Bought this to read on holiday and had finished it by the time we arrived - gripping, personal account of one part of a very intense time on the ground in Afghanistan. Easy to read and hard to put down. Powerful.

Hard hitting well written account of a British soldiers time in Afghanistan. Descriptive, detailed in every aspect and doesn,t pull any punches. The professionalism, teamwork and support for their mates shines through the whole book.

I read his first book and really enjoyed it, going through his past life when young, and after joining up, was the usual soldier experience as many others before him. From then on it rattled along at a far pace. Unfortunatly this book wasnt a patch on the his first, and I was grateful for the end of the book, there really didnt seem enough content on what was promised by the first book by him. For such an experienced soldier I expected much more than what was on offer. Pity!!

I personally thought it was a great read. The experiences these soldiers went through is harrowing.
I applaud the soldiers for doing a great job under extreme pressure and stress.
Mick Flynn has written a book about our soldiers doing their duty no matter what. If you want to know what our soldiers are up against read this book.
It has everything, action, sadness and that British humour to keep them sane.
Their professionalism does them proud.
We the people of Britain should honour our service's, for doing a difficult job in a foreign land.

Mick has again written a spellbinding but down to earth account of life on the front line. He describes life on the front line so well you could be there some of it is definitely squady humour and only really understandable by service personnel! He let's you into that world but unless you've served you don't fully understand! A very good read as is his other work "Bullet Magnet"

I also found this to be a gripping read. Perhaps not quite as 'life journey' as his first one, but I don't begrudge that: I suspect he'd 'shot his wad' on the first one not leaving him so much to say on the second. But still a great and inspiring read and very touching - and indeed heart breaking - in places. Worth every penny.

Well written and moving accounts of operations in Afghanistan. Really does bring it home to readers just how much those soldiers went through. Nothing but praise for their skill and bravery under such demanding conditions on a daily basis.
