    The SAS has a reputation as a discrete, elite fighting force which, despite a few books over the years from those who have served among it s number, has retained much of it s mystique and cachet I ve read a few military memoirs in the past so when I stumbled upon Pete Winner at an airshow selling this book, with a donation to a military charity with each sale I was never going to walk on past This book details Pete s amazing 18 years in the SAS plus the new demands placed on him as he adjusted t [...]

    If you re looking for the story of a real hero, then look no further Soldier I is the true account of one man s awesome career in the UK s elite fighting force The Special Air Service and an insight into the challenges he faced when he left the Regiment behind The SAS came to the attention of the nation as the fearsome black clad figures who stormed the Iranian Embassy in 1980 and successfully rescued over 20 hostages Soldier I was there, at the heart of the action, and in his book recounts the [...]

    A well written book, that covers the career of a long time member of the SAS 22nd Regiment , and what happened to him after he left the service This book fits in well with other books written by his mates in the regiment, Andy McNabb and others If you had read these other books, you will recognize the style of writing and it is of interest in how it all seems to fit together when you read the accounts of battle scenes from these different perspectives.Pete Winner Soldier I is presented in raw fo [...]

    This book was very entertaining and enlightening, which is precisely why I chose to read it I wanted to learn the ins and outs of the daily life of my friend who is an SAS soldier without having to ask, so I could avoid the always uncomfortable answer of sorry, I can t tell you The enlightening portion of it was also the worst part, because it seems as though the author has gleefully betrayed a secret oath found among the SAS brotherhood I was very torn between being angry at the author s action [...]

    Only half the book was about his time in the SAS the other half was about what he did aftert really what I thought the book would be about I thought it would only talk about his time in the military But oh well It was still an interesting book.

    OK So its full of cliches OK, so we know most of the salient points of regimental history from before Its still great to get the memoirs of one of the guys who made that history This is probably a must read for anyone interested in the history of the SAS.

    this book was pretty interesting however, some of the battles were a bit boring,and the end was kind of boring too but i still think it s a good book.
