When best selling author David Black was a young man, he took a slug in the eye and it seemed his military career was over... or was it?
He began to rebuild his shattered life by taking a most extreme road to salvation...The British army's reserve SAS Regiment's selection! With a 90% failure rate, did David set the bar too high? Had he embarked on an impossible quest? Join him on the barren and unforgiving mountains of south Wales, and see for yourself what the elite SAS demanded, and what he endured in this true and quite amazing story.
David Black served in the British army for more than 15 years. From the ugly, war-weary streets of Londonderry in the early 1970's, to the ranks of a Territorial regiment of the now famous Special Air Service, until the mid eighties. When not serving part-time with the Regiment, he worked as a fully qualified London black cab driver.
David holds many memories of life and experiences in the British army and particularly the Special Air Service regiment; happy, sad, funny, outrageous and sometimes, downright dangerous. This book covers his early military years, and culminates with a detailed look at his S.A.S. Selection and Continuation training course.
Also available in paperback, direct from Amazon.
