NOTE: There is a Kindle edition that contains both this and the one he wrote of his actual experiences in the SASR.

I came across this book while conducting research for my current WIP "Truth+Lies" which will feature an ex-SAS guy and a guy who claims to be.

There is apparently an unwritten rule in the Australian SAS not to write books about their exploits. In fact, some say they don't even tell anyone except their immediate family that they are a part of the elite unit, preferring to be vague abo
'Who Dares Wins' is the motto of the Special Air Service Regiment or the Australian SAS. 'Warrior Training' by Keith Fennell, former SAS soldier, has written an account of his training and work in the SAS. This book is for anyone interested in what it takes physically, mentally and emotionally to join one of the toughest and most respected special ops units in the world and how these men truly live up to their motto.

Written in a highly entertaining, laid-back style it is much like, I suspect, th
Absolutely amazing book
I found this book very hard to put down. It is the personal account of a Special Forces soldier in Australia. This is his story of his preparation, training and drive to becoming an elite soldier. Mr. Fennel recounts his memories and shares the amazing journey he made. The amount of mental and physical strength as well as motivation and belief in self is astounding and reading about the lengths and depths these men go to is truly astounding. A well written, entertaining and highly informative re ...more

I love Keith's writing style, he might as well be sitting next to you at the bar telling you the story. His descriptions of some of the guys that I have personally met are just spot on. Great story telling and a realistic interpretation of just how hard the training schedule is.
This book provides a great insight into what Keith had to endure to be accepted into the SAS, which blows you away. You also obtain a broader appreciation for his purpose and drive in life as he shares some of his travels and adventures. Keith has clearly written this book to help him progress to a new life.
I could not put this book down. I am in awe of the physical strength and determination of SAS Soldiers and the book inspired and motivated me mentally. This book is even better than Fennell's first book - Warrior Brothers. I recommend it to anyone, not just those interested in war.
This book made me realise how much more that we can do physically and mentally in every day life. We all have a greater capability but don't use it to our full potential every day. Keith's story inspired me.
This book is thought provoking and left me awestruck! The mental and physical strength of these men are extraordinary! It's a great read, and I highly recommend it :)
Good book, gives a great insight to the mind of an Australian SAS soldier during selection.

Interesting.. Not bad.
