Definitely recommend for anyone who enjoys a realistic account of all aspects of this on going and never to be finished war. Either a very brave,team orientated leader , but showing how hard it must be to reassimilate back into life, after such extreme experiences. Making it easier to go back for another rotation. His and others bravery help make Australia what it is.
This is a fascinating read that provides a rare insight in to what drove one of Australia's finest soldiers. While the descriptions of the battles Cam Baird engaged in are thrilling, the book also gives a clear-eyed account of the costly war in Afghanistan - showing both the tragedy of the conflict and the heroism that has been born out of it. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in the modern Australian army.
With no disrespect to the deceased or to any of those in his line of work, I'm not sure why this (audio) book reads like an advertisement for big Australian brands. I think there were probably as many mentions of specific beers, bars, and bands as there were quotes from the subject himself.
