Publisher's Summary

Ex-Special Forces' soldier and host of SAS: Who Dares Wins, Ollie Ollerton narrates his incredible story for the first time. 

Where is your break point?

Is it here? 

Facing the gruelling SAS selection process on one leg, with a busted ankle and the finish line nowhere in sight?

Or here?

Under heavy fire from armed kidnappers while protecting journalists en route to Baghdad.

Or, is it here? 

At the bottom of a bottle, with a family in pieces, unable to adapt to a civilian lifestyle, yearning for a warzone.

We all have break points to face - at the gym, in the office, in our personal lives - those moments of self-doubt where we have to dig deep, and find something within to grab hold of and push us through. 

Ex-Special Forces soldier Ollie Ollerton has faced his own break points and now he tells us the lessons he has learnt along the way. From survivor of a freak childhood attack to elite fighter, Ollie's incredible story features, high-speed shoot-outs, counter-terrorism and humanitarian heroics. 

Special Forces soldiers are not supermen. Bullets don't bounce off them. They don't hit the target with every shot. They have the same vulnerabilities and doubts as the rest of us. But ordinary people can achieve the extraordinary, under the greatest pressure, in the most challenging situations. 

Ollie's life has taught him that everyone has the capacity for incredible achievement, because it's only when it's crunch time, when you're down to your last bullet - when you're at break point - that you find out who you really are.

Ollie Ollerton co-hosts SAS: Who Dares Wins alongside Ant Middleton, Jason Fox and Mark Billingham.

Fascinating, Raw and left me wanting more

i was anticipating a book on soldiering and being in a war zone and there is some of that ........however what grasped me was the raw truth about personal events,the use of visualisation, the way certain life events influence down the years , the subtle humour , the control of mind to push away fears - I loved It - Looking forward to your next one Olly :)

Who Dares Truly Wins

A brilliant and captivating book that amused me, shocked me but ultimately inspired me to realise that no matter what the obstacle, I can overcome it.
