By Mick Flynn
An honest and haunting account of life as the most highly decorated serving soldier in the British Army.
From the breakneck pace of an opening where he is in action in Helmand province, under fire from the Taliban, Mick Flynn pulls no punches. It's obvious that he is a trained killer.
But how did it reach this point? The journey starts with his childhood, a working class lad, learning to fight and finding himself repeatedly on the wrong side of the law. Even after joining the Army he is found at fault and jailed, an experience that finally shocks him into behaving himself. From there, it is off to Northern Ireland and straight into hotspots where Mick's courage and determination are all that keep him alive.
Action-packed, shoots-from-the-hip narration from an engaging hero, this is gritty realism at its most shocking.
