Some years among SAS troops, an autobiography.
Who joins the Regiment (hungry orphans, angry young boys, white trash and eccentric or particular people); what the Regiment does (everything but flying planes or floating ships); when they need to be fit and ready for action: immediately; how heavy and tough their drill is (as tough as hell).
Where: Brunei, Malaysia, Ulster, Oman, Belize, Botswana, UK, Beirut, Colombia, Iraqi desert.
Unexpectedly, weaponry is not so important, dealt about as "tooling". Situation awareness far more. Team drill is key.
Dry as a desert rat's ass, serious as a scorpion sting, amusing as a soldier joke and flooded with whisky, absolutely squeezed from everything useless as your "bergen" (backpack) should be.
It's difficult to do, but it works.
Italian version is translated somehow rambo-talks, prefer original english where the bloke speaks without posing.
