    'Controversial, blistering and unique' - Andy McNab.

    'The book is definitely very well written and the author clearly knows his stuff and has put in considerable research time. It reads differently from the typical SAS type book that in addition to the usual gun battles and explosions it goes into a lot of historic geographic and political detail as to why the SAS were involved in a particular operation or war and while this is interesting especially for someone like me that enjoys history.'

    'Excellent book being a student of military history this book was a great departure from some of the recent SAS books produced I like the way numerous gaps were filled with the political history of the countries concerned. Great insights into the way the Regiment has evolved over the years and an interesting take on where it should be. An extremely good no nonsense read, no self promotion, in fact the author goes out of his way to promote the sacrifices of his colleague something to be admired in this day and age.' - Google Reviews.
