    Now here's the surprise ignore the lame cover and the rather officious book title and think for a minute on the kind of books you might look for if you were going to learn about Aussies and our culture Would you picture In a Sunburned Country by Bill Bryson? Would you picture similar type tourist style books? Travel books? Well you are going down the wrong track THIS is the book my International friends should be reading to understand what Aussies are really like A strange place for you to find enlightenment sure you would think so but it simply is that good The best book on Australians to date if you are a history buff As I don't think anyone but a history buff is going to pick up this military non fiction to begin withAs I say the name and cover are off putting and don't give much of a feel of what this book is going to be like It is true that it is about our SAS soldiers Only within this books is a story that is as good as any British or American authored warmilitary non fiction covering the Afghanistan andor Ira Wars This book can match it with the bestThe British don't really get too much of a mention in the Middle East theatre but the Americans do and I think by reading this book Americans can get a good sense of how their special forces arms and Airforce look to Australians through the eyes of our own SAS The SAS worked hand in glove with the Americans in the middle east and it was mutually beneficial for both sides We got some of the American weapons to play with and some of the Yanks got Vegemite and some 'swearing' training like no other country can provideThrough this book Americans and Australians can get to see how well our teams actually work together There are cultural differences but as allies on a battlefield it is a pretty good marriage it would seemI learned bucketloads from this book I learned a lot about our involvement in East Timor and our SAS's involvement in providing care during the Tampa boat people tragedy I learned most however from the authors outstanding pages devoted to our SAS in Afghanistan and Ira I learned that not only was it Australians who were the first ones into Ira when the war started but that we were the first to make physical contact with the enemy and our SAS boys were the first to call in an air strike in Ira due to an American communications system breakdown Our SAS certainly were in the thick of it If I could afford to buy a copy of this book and send it to all my American friends here on Goodreads I would do it in a heartbeat I think you all would get buckloads out of this book too

    I bought this book many years ago and only just got around to reading it There were some very interesting sections and some rather dull chapters What remained throughout is the reinforcement of the strength and courage needed to become an SAS soldier It must be incredibly difficult to do what they do

    Everything you'd want in a book about the Aussie SAS Couldn't put it down

    Worth a read for some pithy anecdotes from blokes who are and were the real deal and interesting to hear perspectives from higher up the chain of command Not in anyway ground breaking but worthy of a good skim for some interesting material

    I like the book probably because I like the military It's a balanced account that brings out to the world Australians Special Forces in a way that has not been done before A flowing revealing story of the 'unseen unheard' tough men of the military and their exploits from East Timor to Afghanistan and Ira A good read for the factually interested
