    Ross Kemp has encountered conflict and warfare the world over, broadcasting from some of the most volatile military hot-zones. From meeting the world's deadliest gangsters, to perhaps his hardest assignment of all; embedded with the British Army in Afghanistan’s Helmand province, where he witnessed some of the fiercest fighting of the conflict and was trained in the tactics they use to stay alive.

    Scott says: "Easy listen with excellent stories and narration."

    What made the experience of listening to Warriors: British Fighting Heroes the most enjoyable?

    Very well written and the narrator did an excellent job making an already excellent book more entertaining.


    What other book might you compare Warriors: British Fighting Heroes to and why?

    This book is very similar to D-Day and Citizen Soldier by Stephen Ambrose. The author has written a collection of historical biographies about individuals who could easily have been our friends or neighbors but whom in the midst of combat, risk and often give their vary lives as a sacrifice to safe the lives of their fellow soldiers and to further the cause of freedom. As a father of two young boys, in a day and age when our children look up to professional athletes and rock stars, these are the type of men I want my sons to view as heroes. If your a fan of Stephen Ambrose, you'll love these stories!


    What does Jonathan Keeble bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His inflections and pacing enhance the listen


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    The book is divided into 12 chapters on my iphone. Most of the stories are about 45 minutes in length. This is long enough to delve into the details without belaboring the point. Each story kept me entertained to the end.
