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.

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.

War at the sharp end

Brilliant account of gut wrenching decisions, constant pressure under fire and all the love for brothers in arms even though they've only been together for days.
High paced, superbly written and narrated very well.
Really couldn't give a higher review, it kept me wanting to get back in the car for a drive just so I could listen.

The book is just amazing!!! As a fellow soldier i can relate. I was especially moved and angered by how the military treated these brave brave lads. Heroes in my book.
