'Searingly honest' Sun
It takes courage and mental strength to be a successful sniper, to dig in for days as you wait for your targets, to stay calm on a battlefield when the enemy are determined to take you out. Craig Harrison has what it takes. In Afghanistan he saved the lives of his comrades with the longest confirmed sniper kills - 2,475 metres.
In this unflinching autobiography Craig takes us into the heat of the action as he describes his active service in the Balkans, Iraq and Afghanistan, and gives heart-stopping accounts of his sniper ops as he fought for his life on the rooftops of Basra and the barren hills of Helmand province.
Craig was blown up by an IED in Afghanistan and left battling severe PTSD. After his identity was revealed in the press, he also had to cope with Al Qaeda threats against him and his family. The Longest Kill is a gripping story of a soldier who has paid a high price for his heroism.
