'If I could give it more stars I would' 5***** Reader Review
'One of the best first-hand accounts of combat that I've ever read' Andy McNab
'A truly stunning story. I have read this 4 times and it's still as captivating now as the first time' 5***** Reader Review

'We all saw it at once. Half a dozen voices screamed 'Grenade!' simultaneously. Then everything went into slow motion . . .'

April 2004.

Dan Mills and his platoon of snipers fly into southern Iraq, part of an infantry battalion sent to win hearts and minds. They were soon fighting for their lives.

Back home we were told they were peacekeeping.

But there was no peace to keep.

Because within days of arriving in theatre, Mills and his men were caught up in the longest, most sustained fire fight British troops had faced for over fifty years.

This awe-inspiring account tells of total war in throat-burning winds and fifty-degree heat, blasted by mortars and surrounded by heavily armed militias - you won't be able to put this down.

'A gritty speedball-run. Strong, cohesive and complete . . . It plugs the reader straight into the blood and guts of the action' The Times

'Full-on graphic detail . . . You can practically taste the dust and the cordite'
Daily Express

'The most vivid account ever of total combat on Iraq's frontline'
Sun

'A highly-charged, action filled, adrenalin-pumped, page-turning read that, frankly, knocks the socks off all previous British accounts in this genre' Sunday Telegraph

Amazing

Brilliant read

As hot as the Iraq desert…….

From the first chapter I was engaged as much as the men in the platoon. On the edge of your seat stuff with the typical soldier wise cracks. This 6 months in 2004 was recorded as the most enemy contact in military history since WW2……And your in the middle of it with the lads. Happy April the 18th boys. God bless Ray. Buy this now.
