Sniper One: The Blistering True Story Of A British Battle Group Under Siege
The gritty, awe-inspiring true story that takes you right into the heart of the Iraq war from Sunday Times No.1 bestseller Sgt. Dan Mills.
‘One of the best first-hand accounts of combat that I’ve ever read’ Andy McNab
‘We all saw it at once. Half a dozen voices screamed ‘Grenade!’ simultaneously. Then everything went into slow motion…’
April 2004: Dan Mills and his platoon of snipers fly into southern Iraq, part of an infantry battalion sent to win hearts and minds. They were soon fighting for their lives.
Back home we were told they were peacekeeping. But there was no peace to keep. Because within days of arriving in theatre, Mills and his men were caught up in the longest, most sustained fire fight British troops had faced for over fifty years.
This awe-inspiring account tells of total war in throat-burning winds and fifty-degree heat, blasted by mortars and surrounded by heavily armed militias – you won’t be able to put this down.
