SNIPER IN HELMAND
Author trained as sniper and served a full tour of duty with 1st Battalion the Royal Anglian Regiment in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. Describes the highs and lows of almost daily front line action experienced by our soldiers deployed on active service in arguably the most dangerous area of the world.
As part of the Battle Group's crack Mobile Operations Group, James's mission was to liquidate as many Taliban as possible. The reader experiences sniper tactics and actions, whether in ambush or quick pre-planned strikes, amid the ever present lethal danger of IEDs. Reveals the psychological pressures and awesome life-and-death responsibility of his role and, in particular, the deadly cat-and-mouse 'games' with the enemy snipers intent on their own kills. These involved the clinical killing of targets at ranges of 1,000 meters or greater.
