But for Chris Hunter, just when life couldn't get any more dangerous, the stakes are raised again. Halfway through his tour, he is told, "They want you dead, Chris. You and your team have captured their weaponry, you've fingered them with forensics, you've neutralised a shedload of their IEDs. They're out to kill the golden-haired bomb man in Basra."
Suddenly Chris Hunter is not only saving other people's lives, he's saving his own.

An outstanding narration of a fascinating but depressingly predictable service of a segment of the British Army in Iraq. Yet, Hunter writes in a fetchingly personal style, presenting with intelligence the reality of life in a foreign army placed in a relatively friendless land. The final chapter of all of our post-9/11 realities is yet to be written, and, likewise, this book doesn't even attempt to assign a positive outcome to the whole bloody mess, either. Pity.
Chris just tells it like it is and explains the contradictions in his life. The tough stuff is well balanced and the insight into what went on revealing
hope he (they - his family) are happy now
