A very informative book to read. Very exciting with action in every chapter. This book is written in language I understand well, that of the ordinary soldier.
Sgt Mills led his platoon well in scores of actions against vastly superior numbers as well as establishing his snipers den on the roof of the building they were there to protect. The book explains how the Princess of Wales Regiment, newly arrived in Southern Iraq, coped with increasing violence against them by the Mehdi army and others and how they took them on - and largely won. It didn't happen without casualties and the reaction of all shows the mettle of the modern infanteer in the British Army.
An excellent read.
