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

A fascinating insight into the process of applying for the SAS. Some of the stories throughout the book make it very hard to put down! At times I found it went into details that weren’t really relevant to the overall book but all in all I found it to be a full on detailed description of the life of a SAS soldier.

Ps: There was one quote seemed to really stand out for me in this book!
“We are all motivated to achieve different things in life.... I am competitive by nature, but I don’t gauge my suc

Gave this five stars because it's simply an amazing read. The author writes well about his journey towards being a member of the SAS regiment, and what the selection trials are like. How well they select only the strongest, most enduring and deep thinking soldiers who can operate alone and step into leadership too when required.

I found it an inspiring read too, compelling me to try harder and never give up on my ambitions.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
