Description - Sniper Oneoup Under Siege by Dan Mills
April 2004- Sgt Dan Mills and his platoon of snipers fly into southern Iraq, part of an infantry Battalion sent to win hearts and minds. They were soon fighting for their lives. Back home we were told they were peace keeping. But there was no peace to keep. Because within days of arriving in theatre, Mills and his men were caught up in the longest, most sustained firefight British troops had faced for over fifty years.This awe inspiring account tells of total war in throat-burning winds and 50 degree heat, blasted by mortars and surrounded by heavily armed militias. For six months, they fought alone- isolated, besieged and under constant enemy fire. Their heroic stand a modern-day Rorke's Drift. Sniper One is a breathtaking chronical of endurance, camaraderie, dark humour and courage in the face of relentless, lethal assault.
