I Recommend This Book


I have read quite a few military memoirs including several written by former members of Special Forces (although those others were American units such as the Navy Seals).  The training for these special forces seems akin to the British SBS described in this book.  It is always interesting to read about the incredibly grueling training required to achieve full status in these units.  Some of it seems almost superhuman.  These are incredibly focused strong people.   
The author writes in an engaging style, forthright with occasional elements of humour.  His experiences are very interesting and quite often informative.  This is a thoroughly enjoyable read for anyone who is interested in the subject material.
Thank you to Net galley and the publisher for providing me with a copy for my honest review.
