    Gentlemen:

    We are engaged in a war of bullets - not words. Please restrain yourselves from overuse of adjectives when writing blurb and marketing copy; it is the verb that does the work!

    However, should you require hot-blooded back-cover copy, feel free to leverage the below, which proceeds from the restrained to the, er, frothingly tabloid-esque.

    Viewed through the gunsights of the men on the ground, this is the war in Afghanistan.

    Viewed through the bloodied prism of an infantryman's gunsight, this is the war in Afghanistan as experienced by Britain's front-line fighters: Fuelled with adrenalin, spiced with dark humour and packed with punch.

    Wade through the eviscarated carcasses of slaughtered Taliban in this squaddies' eye view of the savage deathscapes of Afghanistan. Experience Britain's most murderous war since World War II - in the raw. A brutal reading experience that will leave you shattered, stunned and ready to storm your local mosque.

    That will be GPB50 for the top one, GBP100 for the second, and 50p for the third.
