Last Night Another Soldier... | [Andy McNab]

Afghanistan, 2009. A Rifle section is halfway through their six-month tour of duty in Helmand Province. Sixteen men from their Battalion have already been killed. Forty-seven others have been wounded and flown back home. The last three months have been tough and it shows.

    Classics, history, historical fiction, marketing, Napoleonic stuff and of course 'Boys own Adventure'. This is my bent. Occasional self help as well.

    "Stuff happens"
    What disappointed you about Last Night Another Soldier...?

    It is a little cliche and predictable.


    What could Andy McNab have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Perhaps taken a leaf out of Bernard Cornwell's Sharpe's series and made a story with twists and a real plot.


    What three words best describe Paul Thornley’s performance?

    Nice, tight, real.


    Any additional comments?

    A story of a young soldier who does the typical stuff in a war zone and has stuff happen. Nothing very inspiring or page turning. Not one of Andy's best works, but Paul Thornley's performance does bring it to life.

    "Top Notch McNab"

    Andy McNab comes up with the goods perfectly within the time constraints of this 2 hours long book. His descriptions of the British soldiers in the story along with their backgrounds and life in Afghanistan are really well done, giving you a real feel for the life of an ordinary soldier. The last action scene in the book is one of the most gripping I've heard/read in a long time. Obviously with it being a 2 hour novelette you don't get the same depth of story as full length novel but with the time constraints I don't think McNab could have done any better - recommended!
