Soldiers without borders by Ian McPhedran
Reviewed by Aidan Hall (Year 13)
Soldiers Without Borders (Beyond the SAS) is about the lives of various Australians (and a couple Kiwis’) that have dedicated their lives to the SAS. Each guy has his own chapter in the book, and each tells their story of their life with the SAS. Some tell about the vicious C.T. training in the 1980’s, and how the government refuses to acknowledge their services, some recall really bad accidents, some just say about how it made them a better person.
Probably the best part of this book is how each guy tells it as it is, without glorifying everything to make it sound like every thing that happened was superficial. As a result this book is a really full of inspirational stories about how the SAS improved their lives, while remembering to include he dangers of the Regiment.
