Danger Close: Commanding 3 Para in Afghanistan | [Stuart Tootal]

Danger Close: Commanding 3 Para in Afghanistan

3 PARA was the first unit into Helmand in 2006. Sent on a peace mission, it became engaged in a level of combat that had not been experienced by the British Army since the end of the Korean War. Undermanned and suffering from equipment shortages, 3 PARA fought doggedly to win the break in battle. Numerous gallantry decorations were awarded, but they were not without cost. This is a dramatic, and often moving, insight into the leadership of soldiers at the sharp end of war.

    "Worst Read Book EVER"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A different narration - Simon Shepherd obviously has no knowledge of what he is reading, he puts the wrong emphasis at the wrong points, and sounds like he is delivering a sermon rather than telling the story.Genuinely the worst book I have EVER listened to, spoilt by the Narrator totally.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    As expected


    How could the performance have been better?

    Read by a person who has some Military acumen, and have been checked before release by Stuart Tootal, he would be horrified if he ever listened to this reading, spoilt the book totally I had to give up after chapter 3, I could listen no more. I couldn't get into the story due to the pathetic reading of it.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    As previously said, very disappointing
