Excellently researched book about the SAS. A number of combat scenes described with some graphic imagery. There are scenarios where unlawful military action is described. The author correctly acknowledges these as unlawful. He also refers to homosexuality as being a driving force behind some of men’s passion for action. Casual sex presented rarely but in terms of acceptance. Church seldom presented and rarely when spirituality is mentioned it is seen as irrelevant.
