This is a great story and very well researched and written. The Aussie narrator does a great job of doing the voices and American accents. He is the most Aussie sounding bloke they could have chosen which ads to the pride I feel as an Australian when listening to it. This would be great for some US listeners who may forget that there are many other nationalities supporting the war effort in Afghanistan and doing a great job. I don't remember ever reading/listening to a "war"book written by a female author and she is bloody good at it. Please write another one!

Pretty good story, although I must disagree with the American accent deal - the narrator's attempts were terrible. It didn't detract from the story, though, which I enjoyed despite thinking there might have been a bit more to it when I downloaded it. I was expecting there to be more action rather than a detailed account of what it's like to be bombarded almost constantly by the enemy. This doesn't take anything away from the fact that all the soldiers involved deserve any recognition they received as it takes a special person to maintain composure under such circumstances. The main characters in the book are the sort of people you would want on your side should you be in a fight and their story is quite inspirational and well worth listening to.
