18 Hours: The True Story of an SAS War Hero
Jock Wallace was pumped. It was the start of Operation Anaconda, the US-led military offensive to flush out Al Qaeda and Taliban from their last stronghold in the Sahi Kot Valley in Afghanistan. If intelligence reports were correct, there were between 100 and 250 enemy fighters holed up in the extensive cave systems in the mountain ridges around the beautiful valley. But reports can be wrong. Giving an account of one of the fiercest engagements in the history of the special forces war on terror, this book presents the true story of how an SAS soldier fought the fight of his life against the world's deadliest terrorists in the most dangerous corner on earth and came out victorious, a saviour to his troops and a hero in his homeland.
