A refreshing and compelling story. Anthony 'Harry' Moffitt spent more than twenty years in the SAS. An improvised game of cricket was often the circuit-breaker Harry and his team needed after the tension of operations. He began a tradition of organising matches wherever he was sent. It's a book about combat, It's a book about the toll that war takes on soldiers and their loved ones. And it's a book about the healing power of cricket. A great read.
