The Killing Zone by Lt Col Richard "Skid" Dorney,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Killing Zone (Paperback)
I have just finished reading Lt Col "Skid" Dorney's look back at 1st Battalion grenadier Guards 2007 tour of duty in Afghanistan.
Skid brings to life the realities of life on tour in Afghanistan. He shows how these men, young and experienced go into the unknown of the Afghan desert and learn the harsh lessons of fighting a very determined enemy.
The book is full of insight, information and humour. It also tackles the fact that these soldier are firstly human beings with feelings.
Essential reading for those of us who have toured the world with the Grenadier Guards but also those who have never lifted a weapon in anger.
