Summary

In Helmand province in July 2006, Major Adam Jowett was given command of Easy Company, a hastily assembled and understrength unit of Paras and Royal Irish rangers. Their mission was to hold the District Centre of Musa Qala at any cost. Easy Company found themselves in a ramshackle compound, cut off and heavily outnumbered by the Taliban in the town. 

In No Way Out, Adam evokes the heat and chaos of battle as the Taliban hit Easy Company with wave after wave of brutal attack. He describes what it was like to have responsibility for the lives of his men as they fought back heroically over 21 days and nights of relentless, nerve-shredding combat. Finally, as they came down to their last rounds and death stared Easy Company in the face, the siege took an extraordinary turn.... 

Powerful, highly charged and moving, No Way Out is Adam's tribute to the men of Easy Company who paid a heavy price for serving their country.

Narrator was excellent

I'm amazed at how the narrator managed to pull off Irish brummie and Northern Irish accents. Fascinating story

A Soldiers Story

A gripping account enhanced by a talented narrator. I feel that the epilogue should have been a prologue. To allow the authors story to say bollocks to his critics.

Shattering

An incredible account of the front line action against the Taliban. Adam and his brave men were put in an impossible situation yet through hard grit and determination they succeeded in fending off the enemy. This is the realest, rawest and most exhilarating book I’ve read on the war in Afghanistan. Those lads are heroes, nothing but respect!

Fantastic Book

Good review which really gives an insight into the soldiers struggles in Helmand, and not what the main stream media reported.

A story that must be told

A gripping story well told - and some characteristics of military command prove immutable, for good and ill.

a real page turner

what is telling is the underlying political pressure the commanders where under to deny the reality of the situation they expect the troops to operate under.

No way out

I thoroughly enjoyed No Way Out and thought it told an incredible story of how the Paras, the Royal Irish Rangers and soldiers from other units fort along side. These men were under siege for weeks and showed great heroism which they should be more recognised for. It’s a book well worth reading and I would like to thank Major Adam Jowett for the telling of it. Many thanks R Blackwall

Incredible story, I didn’t know the full story of what my fellow Paras & Royal Irish were up to when I was in Kajaki at the same time, however, this explains it all.
