This was a fantastic read, but I was surprised to discover the sentence that moved me to tears didn’t chronicle deaths of comrades or depictions of men with spirits broken by fear but:
When the most remarkable and powerful friendships you will ever have in your life become severed by distance – both in geography and lifestyle – it feels like the death of a friend.
By this stage, the author had completely exposed himself on the page. I’d seen his dedication to task, the obsession to learn

It’s a good read in a fairly engaging style but not a great read. The author has a tendency to literary flights of fancy in some of the oddest places that I found more distracting than anything. That said, the book is written with a real sensitivity to the human condition and from a very interesting perspective. Perhaps if it was written a few more years later the author’s maturing style would make it a great read.

I actually enjoyed this as part of a two-book volume. (The other book is Warrior Training). If you pick up the two-book version, read Warrior Training first.

This book - Warrior Brothers - isn't just a blow-by-blow operational descriptor. The author deftly weaves in his personal feelings about what was occurring, and how he copes with the trauma of witnessing such events as he has. It's so well-written too.

The author often admits that he's obsessive about doing everything well, about being the
Firstly: not my kind of read which is why only 2 stars from me. I also find, whilst the places are different, it's same kinda stuff happening & being shared again (repetitive).

Some positive notes: a very upbeat paced book. When I read it, I can just imagine a typical Aussie bloke sharing his story at a barbie or at the pub with his mates. Very down to earth & humble writings which I suppose is a reflection of the kind of guy the author is. Amazing will & courage took him from a

An inspiring read that challenges you to look at yourself and be humble. The respect I have for Keith is difficult to articulate in words. This book really resonated with me. Keith embodies what is means to be a Warrior Brother but maintains his integrity in the most difficult cirumstances and demonstrates true leadership which is often lacking in so many others that judge prematurely.

A great read about life in the Australian SAS. From recruitment to missions in East Timor, Afghanistan and more and life as a security contractor in Iraq and Banda Aceh after the tsunami before the call of family returns him to civilian life.

A great little book about one man's experience in the Australian SASR. I would have liked to have read a little more about his experiences bodyguarding in East Timor, but overall an interesting insight into our premier regiment.
