Críticas:

"One of the best first-hand accounts of combat that I've ever read."--Andy McNab, international bestselling author of "Bravo Two Zero"

"Mills powerfully describes the demanding work of his snipers before and after the city was brought under control...British participation in Iraq has been largely ignored in the U.S. That should change with Mills's page-turning account."--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)

"Possibly the year's best book, so far, on combat in Iraq."--"Booklist"

"A gritty, speedball run...strong, cohesive, and complete...plugs the reader straight into the blood and guts of the action."--"The Times "(UK)

"Another testosterone-laced memoir of an elite unit kicking butt in Iraq, this one with a cheerful, politically incorrect British twist....A military memoir refreshingly devoid of the usual patriotic overlay." --"Kirkus Reviews"

Mills powerfully describes the demanding work of his snipers before and after the city was brought under control (more or less). . . . British participation in Iraq has been largely ignored in the United States. That should change with Mills's page-turning account, already an international bestseller.

Reseña del editor:

Iraq, 2004. Sgt. Dan Mills and the rest of the 1st Battalion, The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment, were supposed to be winning hearts and minds. They were soon fighting for their lives...


Within hours of the battalion's arrival in Iraq, a grenade bounced off one of their Land Rovers, rolled underneath, and detonated. The ambush marked the beginning of a full-scale firefight during which Mills killed a man with a round that removed his assailant's head.


The mission had already gone from bad to worse. Throat-burning winds, blast bombs, and militias armed with AKs, RPGs, and a limitless supply of mortar rounds were the icing on the cake for Mills and his men. For the next six months--isolated, besieged, and under constant fire--their battalion refused to give an inch. This is the breathtaking true chronicle of their endurance, camaraderie, dark humor, and courage in the face of relentless, lethal assault.
