Eight Lives Down is one of the most exciting, motivational and uplifting books that I have read in quite a while. The author writes about his time as a bomb disposal operator while serving in Iraq with the British military. It is extremely well written and portrays the day to day life he went through, the experiences of the job, his interactions with his friends and team members...all the while dealing with matters at home. This book is extremely uplifting and shows very clearly the sacrifices that many soldiers make and the sheer difficulty and stress of their jobs. I would recommend this book for anyone interesting in military operations in the Iraq, in EOD or who are looking for an exciting action story.

Major Chris Hunter, retired bomb disposal expert for the UK Army, gives us a look into his time as a ATO (Ammunition Technical Officer) in the Iraq war. Mr. Hunter touches on both the Tragedy and triumph of commanding men in combat, while also touching on the effect of his service on his relationship. I found not only the bomb disposal aspect extremely interesting, but the outlook of a person from the UK, which is quite different than the views of the US soldiers I have talked to/read.
