Publisher's Summary

Unfairly convicted of helping a killer in a drug-related hit, Jack Grant faces five long years in the pen. Except the judge offers him an alternative, a chance to make a difference. Grant joins the infantry, and on the 11th of September 2001, the planes hit the World Trade Center. Soon after, they ship out for Afghanistan.

Grant’s unit is tasked with guarding Bagram Airbase. A safe assignment, where his worst enemy is a vindictive platoon lieutenant. That’s until the Taliban mounts a massive attack on the airbase. Grant fights back like a demon and discovers a natural affinity for the heat of battle. Impressed by his ferocity, an Army Rangers captain seconds him to assist with a special mission. It is the start of a long, hard battle for survival and to defeat many powerful and cunning enemies. Some are robed and bearded and carry AK-47s. Others wear the uniform of the US military. At stake is his freedom, his life, and the life of those around him.

Special Operations: Grant’s War is an incredible story of a tough, violent man in a tough, violent land.

Great story, terrible narrator.

I am really enjoying the story, but the narrator is horrible: mispronounced words abound and his accent is annoying. Really detracts from the book.

Grant

I enjoyed listening toHenry Marshall. love his narration.

I saw the reviews for this book, and took a chance and I am glad I did.

A man with strength and honour, finds himself been forced to join the arm, after helping a friend.

It is set just set after 9/11 in Afghanistan. There is action , heroes and those only out for themselves.
Violence, and strength of characters.
I enjoyed the twists and turns.
Glad I got this book

Good book but the narrator was a bit rubbish. I listened at 1.4 speed and he wasn’t so drawling.

I listened at 1.4 speed and he wasn’t so drawling. Should try to be a bit more like RC Bray perhaps??
