A relative, having purchased said heap of shiite, proceeded to wave it in my face as "the real special forces story"....

Honestly, makes Andy McNab look like a factual treatise.

What an odd site. Unless it's a fabulously ornate Wah, its run by these wierdos:

"John Urwin
Founder
Born and raised in the tough backstreets of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne's Byker district, John Urwin came from a disadvantaged background.
At the age of 18 he was called up for National Service with the British army and was posted to Cyprus with the Royal Pioneer Corps. It was whilst with his regiment that John was recruited into a covert unit called The Sixteen. The specialised training he received and the operations he undertook were a life changing experience.
Following the completion of his National Service John returned to England where he married and had 3 children. John became a successful stock car racer and entreuponeer. However, he soon realised that the specialised training he had received in The Sixteen and the skills he had learned should be taught to others. John started his own survival and unarmed combat club. Once the conditions of the Officials Secrets Act, had prosvibed, John wrote about his experiences and published the best selling book entitled The Sixteen. Download e-Book here.

Following the success of the book, John formed the Urwin Combat System (UCS). The Urwin Combat System has been developed to help those fighting the "War on Terror". Subsequently, UCS Ltd.was formed and the company provides unique counter terrorist training to a variety of clients.

The tears are rolling down my face,and my sides are hurting. :lol:

When did National Service finish,how old would he be now,and no insult intended but since when has the Pioneer Corps,been a recruiting ground for the SF :?

Wonderful 8),and it would seem that a "Geordie 18",is a member of his club?

Geordie16 - are you 'John Urwin'?
Seeing as I'm rather bored, it would appear he's a 17 year old kid called Anthony (Birthdate 7/11/1990, heterosexual, bad skin, not your type wedge :wink: ) and that whatever this 'Counter terrorist training' involves an understanding of persec doesn't really come into it.

"John became a successful stock car racer and entreuponeer"

WTF is an "Entreuponeer" It sounds like a mixture of trepanning and pioneering...

"...Once the conditions of the Officials Secrets Act, had prosvibed, John wrote about his experiences..."

Have the conditions prosvibed for everyone or should we apply for our own personal hand fitted prosvibing experience? Is it something to do with inserting random objects to check ones prostate?

This review did it for me, marvelous!

Oh my god..If you're expecting something believable in the remotest sense then don't part with your money. I would even go so far as to say that the man is bonkers. It could even have been written by a child..he has some sort of light saber. ....and with a flick of the wrist..... all the enemy are dead..

"...Ha ha ha ha LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL snigger snigger he he he LOLOLOLOLOL Oh fuckin' hell thats funny, it's as accurate as saying I'm about to convert to Islam......The book doesn't give away any secrets because it hasn't got any..."The UKSF need these skills now"....yeah right and I've got a ten foot willy. The books only use is as shithouse paper..."

Yeah well, yeah Okay VB you can laugh but if you'd had your conditions prosvibed like these brave veteranos of 49 Para (Mong's Own) you wouldn't be chuckling, remember, prosvibing can happen to anyone who happens to be an entreuponeer

I bet you're just jealous of those brave Entreuponeers who've been prosvibed in the service of their country.. OK?

The positive reviews on Amazon are worth a read - however, they all read like they have been written by the same author (hmmm!)...

Absolutely!

"The Sash" - this wonder weapon is totally beyond the ken of any martial arts/ close combat expert I've asked, and I know a fair few, incl ex SF, and an old school friend who makes a very good living instructing troops of various armies, incl British, in "Jap Slapping". His wry comment was: "In terms of personal combat, such a 'weapon' would be like the 'Philosophers' stone'!"

Frankly, this utter bilge would have had more credibility if he'd claimed their wonder weapon was the black pudding made famous by the Goodies' exposition on the ancient Lancastrian martial art "Ecky Thump".

Total, total nonsense: The man must be on drugs or has become unplugged.
There are obviously some very cynical publishers out there. Produce a cover with a bit of a map and 3 rent-boys on it and know that all the Loonies will buy it.
All I can say is "Poor old trees"

Good God almighty, and they say drugs are cool. This is actually a comedy work of the highest order. Id say that this secret unit is a cross of the goon show and the clangers.

It must be the funniest SF book ever, im not sure if this unit wouldnt not so much be on the balcony but running about with their balaclavas on backwards.

This is a true account of an assassination squad that was part of the
British special forces and their skills suppassed the SAS.
This book does not give away any secrets that could be useful to the enemy unlike some.
The author is the founder of the U.C.S. (a special forces training team)
check out the web site for more info.
This is the real deal I have witnessed some of the techniques described in the book and they are mind blowing.The UKSF need these skills NOW.


Fucking do one Billy Bullshit.
