The battle within: a soldiers story

"Highly recommended" SOLDIER, Official magazine of the British Army."Thought provoking and gripping, the battle within is an excellent read". Matt Johnson, author of best seller Wicked Game.Synopsis..."Neil you've experienced more emotional stress in the space of 2 years than the average person would experience over a lifetime. The fact that you can still function is testament to your strength of character". Came the words from the doctor. 21st April 2004. A day Neil will never forget. A young fit soldier, he was on his first combat tour as a member of the mortar platoon in the 1st Royal Welch Fusiliers when he was caught up in one of the worst suicide bomb attacks the British faced during the Iraq campaign. Camp Chindit, a small military base located just outside Basra was the scene of 2 deadly car bombs that left 11 dead and many more seriously wounded. Blown 5 metres by the blast and hit by shrapnel. Neil was medically evacuated back to the UK for treatment, but soon realized like many others, the real battle had only just begun. This is the inspiring true story of a mind that cannot be broken.
