Book Description

June 26 2007
It is the winter of 2001. A terror ship is bound for Britain carrying a horrifying weapon. The British military sends a crack unit of SAS and SBS to assault the vessel before she reaches London. So begins a true story of explosive action as this band of elite warriors pursues the merchants of death from the high seas to the harsh wildlands of Afghanistan. The hunt culminates in the single greatest battle of the Afghan war, the brutal and bloody siege of an ancient mud-walled fortress crammed full of hundreds of Al Qaeda and Taliban.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely AMAZING!!! June 3 2009
By Chris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The other reviews on Amazon have summed up my review pretty well.
This book covers - in its entirety - a seemingly forgotten battle early in the Afghanistan War/Conflict/Police Action or whatever it's being called these days.

The book was written by a Brit, mostly about Brits, so expect some "colonial" put-downs against our American boys. However, they are typically good-natured and are used sparingly.

Anyway, this book is a quick read and is bursting at the seams describing contemporary warfare at its quickest and bloodiest.

This book is highly recommended for anyone interested in the Qala-I-Janghi (Fortress of War), the War in Afghanistan, Special Forces operations, a war account from America's most steadfast ally, a break-neck action story, or just anyone who wants to read an interesting and entertaining story.

Simply put - BUY THIS BOOK AS SOON AS YOU CAN!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book by Lewis Feb. 10 2014
By NH Outdoorsman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a well written, action packed book about a battle that few people knew took place. Again Lewis does a great job of telling the story in an attention grabbing manner and doesn't just try to fill up space. He does a super job with the back stories and the reasons why all those bad guys could have gotten so many weapons into prison.

This book was actually written about a friend who was
in the war over in Iraq. Written by an Englishman.
Good and not an absolute accurate account.
Thank you for the opportunity to buy this book.
