Summary

Join SAS legend Phil Campion as he shares his deeply personal life story, warts and all.

In Who Dares Wins, Big Phil Campion reveals his chequered past, from terrible abuse suffered in a string of kids' homes to psychological abuse suffered at a top public school.

Phil guides you through his soldiering career, from the so called 'green army' to the brutal trial of SAS selection and all that followed. This includes years spent providing private military services across war-torn and risk-laden Africa; in between he was body-guarded the likes of Led Zep, Oasis, Kasabian, Dizzy Rascal and Pro Green.

Phil takes you on his gripping, behind-the-scenes adventure acting as a roving reporter for Sky TV in Syria and Northern Iraq, more often than not under fire.

Brave, riveting and truly revelatory, Who Dares Wins is packed full of jaw-dropping stories to quicken the blood, while also telling of the psychological toll a life in conflict took on the author.

Nice bloke, quietly bad ass

Great story that in no way bigs him self up

Not much SAS stuff but I think that Phil values it’s secrets and to be honest the tale doesn’t suffer for it


Cracking book from a mam I’d be bloody proud to buy a pint or four for.

Outstanding!

Honest, inspirational, motivational and written by a man whose spirit is clearly lit! I didn't think it would be a patch on its predecessor but it has exceeded all expectations. Superb Big Phil, keep em coming ✊🏻
