5.0 out of 5 stars True leadership - essential reading for those wet MPs..., 26 Sept. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Danger Close: The True Story of Helmand from the Leader of 3 PARA (Hardcover)
This is a well written book by a man who shows great leadership and integrity. I have served in the British Army, my only active tours being in NI in the 80's. What these guys had to endure makes my experiences pale into insignificance. The two best things about the book, in my opinion anyway, are the manner in which Col Tootal paints the perfect picture of events on the ground and exposes countless flaws of the weak faceless ministers and bureaucrats who are making a sham of fighting the conflict.

He reveals his genuine care and concern for his men and his loyalty to his men must be one of the contributing factors to their success in the face of battles with both a fanatical enemy and the useless government who deployed them to this crazy theatre of operations.

No MP or MOD civil servant would be comfortable reading this tale but all should and then take time to focus on what unreasonable demands they make of our troops with such little support.

A truly excellent read. My admiration for this man huge.
