Overview

When David Black takes a slug in the eye, it seems his military career is over, or is it?

He begins to rebuild his shattered life by taking a most extreme road to salvation...British army SAS selection.

With a 90%+ failure rate, has David set the bar too high? Has he embarked on an impossible quest? Join him on the barren and unforgiving mountains of south Wales, and see for yourself what the SAS demands that he must endure in this true and quite amazing story.

David Black served in the British army for more than 15 years.
From the ugly, war-torn streets of Londonderry in the early 1970's, to the ranks of a Territorial regiment of the now famous Special Air Service, until the mid eighties. When not serving part-time with the Regiment, he worked as a fully qualified London black cab driver. Because of the security implications with the S.A.S., David has waited over twenty years before writing anything about his many military adventures. Names have been changed, because even now, ex-members of the Regiment (and their families) are potential targets for the more rabid elements of the terrorist world. David holds many memories of life and experiences in the British army and particularly the Special Air Service regiment; happy, sad, funny, outrageous and sometimes, downright dangerous. This book covers his early military years, and culminates with a detailed look at his S.A.S. Selection and Continuation training course. He holds the old saying "I wouldn't change a moment" close to his heart... and means every word of it!
