While back on duty on 11 June 2004, a rocket-propelled grenade hit Beharry's vehicle, incapacitating his commander and injuring several of the crew. Despite his very serious head injuries, Beharry took control of his vehicle and drove it out of the ambush area before losing consciousness. He required brain surgery for his head injuries, and he was still recovering when he was awarded the Victoria Cross in March 2005.

Difficult to understand accent by the narrator
I am a Grenadian like Beharry however we don't all speak like that. Trying to employ a creole accent made the book unbearable to listen. I have opted to purchase the hard back.

Where does Barefoot Soldier rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Wow, you get a really good sense of what life in Grenada is like at both ends of the spectrum, to me a powerful listen - the extreme bravery really comes to life in this and is a really worthwhile listen. Johnson Beharry is a true hero in my eyes and his story is engaging. The narrator is very good and adds to the engagement of listening to the book.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Barefoot Soldier?
Memorable moments - how hard Johnson Beharry works throughout his life and how brave he his. An extremely brilliant example to the youth of today at what can be achieved.
