Hit & Run: The New Zealand SAS in Afghanistan and the Meaning of Honour

£14.99

Product description

Published in 2017 by Potton & Burton.
Includes coloured photographs, ordinance maps and screenshots from social media, government records and press releases. Also contains several appendices - a timeline of events, official list of dead and wounded villagers in the August 2010 raid, family trees of the dead and wounded villagers, record of houses destroyed in the August 2010 raid, coloured photographs of the destroyed houses, original insurgent suspect list, list of the main insurgents' entries on JPEL and official press releases. Extensive chapter-by-chapter end notes and index.

Investigative Journalist Nicky Hager and experienced Conflict Journalist Jon Stephenson have teamed up to to tell the story of a dark and guilty secret of New Zealand's recent history. The book is about what the New Zealand military – and especially the Special Air Service (SAS) – did in Afghanistan in response to the first New Zealander dying in combat in August 2010.
The book describes a series of operations which proved to be ill-conceived, tragic and disastrous. These included an SAS attack on two isolated villages in Afghanistan’s Baghlan province where they mistakenly believed they would find the insurgents who’d attacked a New Zealand patrol 19 days earlier in neighbouring Bamiyan. SAS officers commanded and led the attack, supported by US and Afghan forces.

In overall very good, almost as new, condition. The only flaw is the top right hand corner of the front cover being slightly creased and the front cover opens slightly when the book is laying flat.
