"The author also shares a lot of personal-so to speak-biographical elements with the readers, which makes his books even more human and lifelike...worth reading for academics, members of the armed and law enforcement forces, and anyone interested in a lesser-known period of SAS activity."-- "Terrorism and Political Violence"
