I thought the subject matter was unique but the writing style was a little off-putting. The turn of phrase was not to my liking. You did get a view of what it was like to train for the role but the in depth analysis of transmissions and sighting reticles made it a little tedious in parts. I would recommend Guy Sayers book Forgotten Soldier over this one as you felt cold reading that book but only felt tired reading this book. A good try but it needed more feeling and less Chilton's Manual.
