Description

On a tour of duty in the Helmand River Valley, the Grenadier Guards faced the toughest challenge of their lives...

Carrying out patrols in the most fiercely contested land in Afghanistan the Guards were under fire almost constantly. The summer of 2007 saw some of the most frequent and intense combat yet, beyond what anyone could have predicted. Based in isolated forward operating bases their nearest reinforcements were often miles away, down a track strewn with deadly roadside bombs.

The Killing Zone is an action-packed and authentic insight into the real Afghanistan. This is what it’s like to deliberately draw fire on your own position so that your mates can escape an ambush, to experience the adrenaline rush of being the first in to clear a Taliban compound, and to rely on skill, loyalty and quick-thinking to survive in one of the most dangerous places on earth.

Customer Reviews

Brilliant!

With a bird's eye view of the modern war machine, Dorney not only takes you to the front line of Afghanistan, he puts you there with his men.

In all my years I have never read a modern warfare book where I have felt so much part of the action.

Brilliant!

The Killing Zone

Superb reading, factual and informative. Easy to read and follow. Brings it home how hard and exhausting the British troops are working.

The killing zone

This is modern warfare at its most honest. An account of the war in Afghanistan that will go down in history. If you want to know what it is like to fight the Taliban up close then this is the book to read. Full of heart stopping moments and the emotions of war. A must read. Fantastic.
