Summary

We all saw it at once. Half a dozen voices screamed, 'Grenade!' simultaneously. Then everything went into slow motion. The grenade took an age to travel through its 20 metre arc. A dark, small oval-shaped package of misery the size of a peach....

April 2004: Dan Mills and his platoon of snipers flew 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 firefight British troops had faced for over 50 years.

This awe-inspiring account tells of total war in throat-burning winds and 50-degree heat, blasted by mortars and surrounded by heavily armed militias. For six months they fought alone: isolated, besieged and under constant enemy fire. Their heroic stand was a modern-day Rorke's Drift.

I know people you were there after!

After listening to the amazing story i spoke to a a few army friends of mine who served there straight after! They said it was worse than the book could ever tell. An amazing story of men under siege and the pure skill of training kept them alive. Truly gripping amazing story! You will not regret getting this book. To date one of the best of my 100+ was books i have listened to. The narrator was great! Just get it, and wait until you have a 10 hour journey because you will want to do it all in one go!

Brilliantly told story, feels like you are there👍

An incredible story of what must have been an extremely exciting but equally terrifying experience. How it is written makes you feel as though you are in the thick of it with them. I have thoroughly enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it to anyone.
