Description:
New book, 377 pages. Chris Terrill is a man in search of his limit. The Royal Marine Commando training base has a famous motto: '99.9 per cent need not apply'. Of those who start training, after a very tough selection process, nearly 50 percent fail to make it through the most gruelling physycal tests of any armed forces in the world in an eight-month training regime. The elite who do eventually pass out are generally eightenn years old and at the peak of physical condition. But Chris Terrill is the exception: he is fifty five years old and would become the oldest man to win the coveted Royal Marines Commando Green Beret and enter the record books. And after the Green Beret, he will be plunged into one of the planet's most dangerous wars in the outlaw mountain terrain of Helmand Province. He tells of ferocious battles against the Taliban, of firefigths, of jaw-dropping heroism, British sangfroid and humout, and tragedy as casualties are suffered. This book is a brilliant account of modern war on the front line.
