Review Text

  • By Mr. A. J. Hollis on 22 February 2014

    A very interesting book on one of the many various Army elements that were deployed to fight the terrorist threat. The training was necessarily harsh, but such successful soldiers later on, found normal barrack life too boring and puerile after the high threat environment of the Province. The percentage of former 'operators' who leave the military, is very high. The skills they were taught are in big demand elsewhere. I doubt many are able to settle back into normal military routines. I hope Jackie has a happy and successful career after the experiences in her 'former' life (Army uniform). The sad aspect of her story is the expectation of total conformity back into the military lifestyle - it is not possible after such specifically dangerous and demanding roles. There is a need for the other security services to tap the wealth of experience that is (presently) going to waste, by limited tours in such roles.

    coud not put this book down right from the time it came in the post to the last page.Sad reflection of what our forces had to endure within the UK in the 60/70/80s,something that we now expect from foreign lands.brave men and women whose dedicated service has not been fully recognised as those that now serve elsewhere.A must read for those that were there and those that make the decision to send our forces into hostile environments .

    Absolutely fantastic read from an incredibly brave woman. This book is well written and I could not put it down, this should be made into a film.
