Publisher's Summary

It takes a tough mind-set to be a successful sniper, to be able to dig in for days on your own as you wait for your target, to stay calm on a battlefield when you yourself have become the target the enemy most wants to take out. Craig Harrison has what it takes, and in November 2009 in Afghanistan, under intense pressure, he saved the lives of his comrades with the longest confirmed sniper kill - 2,475 metres, the length of 25 football pitches.
In this unflinching autobiography, Craig catapults us into the heat of the action as he describes his active service in the Balkans, Iraq and Afghanistan and gives heart-stopping accounts of his sniper ops as he fought for his life on the rooftops of Basra and the barren hills of Helmand province. Craig was blown up by an IED in Afghanistan and left battling severe PTSD. After his identity was revealed in the press, he also had to cope with al-Qaeda threats against him and his family. For Craig, the price of heroism has been devastatingly high.

Worth a Read

I enjoyed the book, more so the latter half. Having a military background (Australia) I had worked with KRH many years ago, I certainly could relate. I really enjoyed the technical aspects and field craft, however his treatment towards the end brought me to tears. I wasn't particularly taken with the first half with some of the embellishments. I have great respect for the Brits. He was clearly a dedicated, skilled, brave and thorough professional who really cared about his Diggers. His treatment by the MoD and Media was appalling. I wish him and his family the very best for the future.

It gets a pass

The start is a bit annoying with all the embellishments and him talking about all the guys he easily beats up but quickly starts to pan out as an actual story as it quite good by the end of it
