Reviews

"The honest and fast-paced book covers the time between his decision to sign up through to his post-discharge flight home, which he says was definitely a one-way ticket."
--Vancouver Sun

"Canadian Jake Olafsen survived and thrived in the Royal Marines from 2005 to 2009, serving two tours in Afghanistan and now relating his experiences in this gripping memoir. . . . Olafsen's descriptions of firefights are vivid and well-written, albeit laced with profanity."
--Winnipeg Free Press

." . . Olafson documents it all in its Full Metal Jacket intensity"
--Telegraph Journal
