Sniper One

Dan Mills

April 7th 2004: A year to the day since the city had fallen. Saddam had been deposed. The Marines and the Para's were long gone and Southern Iraq rarely made it into the news. When Sgt Dan Mills and the rest of the 1st Batallion, The Princess of Wales Regiment flew in, they were supposed to be winning hearts and minds. They were soon fighting for their lives. Within hours of arriving in Iraq a grenade bounced off one of the battalion's landrovers, rolled underneath and detonated. The ambush marked the beginning of a full-scale firefight during which Mills killed a man with a round that removed his assailant's head. It was going to be a long tour. Sniper One is a breathtaking chronicle of endurance, camaraderie, dark humour and courage in the face of relentless, lethal assault.

Sgt Dan Mills commanded an 18 man sniper platoon during the siege of Al-Amarah. During a long army career he's served in Bosnia, Kosovo, Northern Ireland and the Falkland Islands. He is still in the army. Sniper One is his first book.
