Publisher's Summary

In April 2006 the elite 3 Para Battle Group was despatched to Helmand Province on a tour that has become a legend. All that summer the Paras were subjected to relentless attacks.

Two years later the Paras are back. The enemy has been forced to adopt new weaponry and tactics. But how much progress are we really making in the war against the insurgents? And is there an end in sight?

In this searing account of 3 Para's return, Patrick Bishop combines first-person accounts of front-line action with an unflinching look at the realities of our involvement in Afghanistan. Writing from a position of exclusive access alongside the Paras, he reveals the 'ground truth' of the mission our soldiers have been given.

    "Not as good at the first book."

    Read very poorly. The reader ruins the book with poorly pronounced wording. Such a shame

    "Good story tedious performance"

    For some reason the narrator seemed like the military parlance was alien to him. Five-oh cals instead of fifty cals etc etc
