One of my favourite books, First into Action is the story of a young Marine's adventures in the SBS, a riveting account of life in one of the world's most secretive Special Forces units. The narrative is moving, shocking and hilarious, often at the same time. Follow Duncan through SBS Selection and then as he serves undercover in Northern Ireland with 14 Int. Meet Paddy the Rottweiler who was regularly beaten by the IRA and Henry the Sheep who loved nothing more than a beer or two in the mess with the boys, characters so real you will feel as if you know them by the time you're finished reading. If I were to choose just 10 books from my library as my all time favourites, this would be one of them.
