Publisher's Summary

I received a target indication from one of the rear team members and observed movement coming from the left of the area of engagement. I then saw them, two enemy fighters moving to a new position. I must have let rip about 20 rounds and not one of the rounds hit them. I had missed completely!

'You shit shot,' swearing at myself under my breath. My teeth were clenched, and I was pissed off at my own incapability with a rifle; however, I realised I had a primarily role to play and that was as the Platoon JTAC.

Havoc-06 is the call sign of former Australian Combat Controller Troy Knight. As a Royal Australian Air Force Airfield Defence Guard, Troy had not found the military adventure he sought: combat operations. His thirst for overseas deployment saw him privately contract his services in Iraq and South East Asia, but when he got whiff that the Australian Defence Force was raising a new defence capability, he couldn’t help but want to be part of it.

The new defence capability, termed the ‘Special Tactics Project’, would see Troy undertaking the gruelling Commando Selection course and passing, making him one of Australia’s first Combat Controllers attached to the Australian Army 2nd Commando Regiment.

As a member of the special forces unit, Troy’s lifelong dream of taking part in combat operations would come to fruition, but the reality of his dream would also play havoc on his life.

Havoc-06 is the untold story of the Australian Combat Controller, but it is also Troy’s personal story and one that will resonate with so many.

Such a great inside look into the experience of a true Warrior

Troy did an incredible job with this book. I felt like I had a strong background of his experiences as we moved through the book and felt like I was almost there with him. It was gripping and captivating. I also loved that he opened up about his mental health struggles as we are in a time when people need to see that it is completely acceptable to speak openly about mental health and seek help when needed. Great work Troy!!!

Good Insight

Good insight into the training and life of a Combat Controller. The author had a very full and extensive military and private career. Discusses military missions, training, critical thinking and the perils of prolonged adrenalin fueled action. I enjoyed it.

An everyday Aussie doing amazing things!

Troy has an amazing story to tell. It's fantastic to hear how a knock-about bloke can achieve so much in his career, and is refreshing to hear Troy about the toll his military service had on his personal life. I loved hearing the raw self criticism that many other authors would avoid. An inspiring story.

Okay but not too engaging for a military audiobook

It's an informative book but not a great story or narration if you're looking for intense battle stories. Could sound a bit turbo but that's what I get military biographies for.

Havoc 06

An interesting story of a CCT, or JTAC. The way these Men juggle assets whilst in contact is testament to their training and skill. Great story.
