I had to stop listening after he described his first battle in Iraq. As a combat vet of U.S. Army Field Artillery, I started to sense B.S. when he started misusing terms and phrases even Privates would know. How could he keep identifying the Iraqi "G5" as a "D5". PMCS is another term he described incorrectly. Anyone that works with a vehicle in the Army knows what PMCS stands for... except him. It only got worse when started describing his first battle. I would say 80% of his story is B.S. After some light research my suspicions were confirmed. He is widely discredited by others that served with him.

Very gripping journey through different conflicts. Very well read and an enjoyable listen which keeps you wanting more
Regardless of the controversy that has surrounded the author of this book, the story provides a fascinating, exciting and human account of combat in our era. The author provides the listener with a technical and visceral view of mechanised and hand to hand fighting and balances it well with touching personal elements and the horrors of war in a greater context. The book provides the adrenaline rush of a good old adventure whilst not glorifying war. As a comparison, it is much like a modem version of Robert Mason's classic book "Chickenhawk".
I don't doubt his courage but apparently this guy won the war all by himself. After further research, it appears his fellow soldiers have disowned him.
