    Gritty!

    This book is composed of stories from SF operative who served out in 'Stan'. It is put together well and is action packed. To the author I say thank you for sharing your experiences and to those who are looking to read something about British SF about the things that happeb down range then this book will give you a snap shot of what has taken place. Plus the book contains some really good snippets of historical info about the different things that have taken place in Afghanistan.

    Quick point

    Liked the book as a quick read to cover SAS ops over a couple of years from the soldiers perspective and not even going into the'head shed' stuff. Camp Bastion got its name from the emblem of 62 Wks Gp RE, not from hesco, just a quick point.

    Rather poor

    The whole book is a let down. All the information regarding missions and other ops details have already been covered in other books and in some cases much Bette detail. On another point the writer states in their beginning of being badged for the SAS it states a similar situation that Andy mcnab has been through. So since then if been reading with the feeling this book was made by andy McNabb and not this "Steve stone" In short a poor read. Consider Task Force Black instead. That is a much better read.
