You're not going to make a good operater mate - type Military Intelligence into Amazon for starters then work from there (lot of wheat & chaff work but I'm (sure?) you might work things from there. OK

I had searched on Amazon but had around 4500 results, Hence why I came here looking for recommendations.. Any serious advice? Oh and I know all about Walther's and Aston's, That's Int Corps 101 ;)

You can't go wrong with a copy of Viz, or failing that Zoo or Nuts. They're all on my preferred reading list for deployments.

Koran, Kalashnikov and Laptop by Antonio Giustozzi

Taliban The Power of Militant Islam in Afghanistan and Beyond by Ahmed Rashid

The Islamist by Ed Hussein

Afghanistan a Modern History by Angelo Rasanayagam

They'll do you to be getting on with for now mate, if you want something interesting but not Afghan based then The Irish War by Tony Geraghty is really good book on the troubles if a bit out of date.

You're as well having this as I've fell at the first hurdle...............colour blindness!! I've gathered, analysed and disseminated all the information to make on objective decision, but Ishihara has deemed me unsuitable. There's more if you need it!
