Summary

Ultimate soldier. Ultimate mission. But can the SAS recruit primitive natives to help them thwart an invading rebel force?

In inhospitable, perilous terrain, braving jungle and swamp, the SAS are dispatched to live with primitive headhunting natives, to try to win hearts and minds with medical aid and assistance, in the hope of recruiting them as Border Scout paramilitaries.

As the training progresses, other SAS soldiers move even deeper into the unexplored jungle - 'the Gap' - to establish ambush sites and helicopter LZs. These Tiptoe Boys conduct daring Claret raids across the border, hitting hard and vanishing fast, ambushing enemy troops moving along the many jungle tracks and rivers. It will be a bloody, nightmarish war - and the SAS must win it.

lost interest

Nice book if you know nothing about the military I lost interest when the inconsistencies outweighed the story line.Author needs to get his facts straight and not cash in on something he clearly hasn't researched properly.

Super story

A great story detailing events of an SAS squad on patrol in the jungle. Exciting, I especially liked the aftermath of the story and the effect on these battle hardened troopers.

Not great

Not as impressive story as others in the title range. Great narration as always from Paul Thornley.
