Immediate Action, McNab’s autobiography, spent 18 weeks at the top of the bestseller lists following the lifting on an ex-parte injunction granted to the Ministry of Defence in September I think it was more to do with the subject matter and situation.
The start of a new series by McNab follows the story of a young soldier through his training and then into the thick of things in Afghanistan. I saw this book and realised it was from adny author I am familiar with so I picked it up and flicked through a couple of pages and thought it was going to be a very interesting book, so I got it out. You watch these things on film and the heroes come home, but this is reality and not everyone comes home.
Plot was perhaps a bit predictable but this didn’t affect my enjoyment. I was apprehensive about reading ‘The New Recruit’ at first, as it was not well-known and could possibly be a bit rubbish because of that. Decent book, not one that i’ll ever find myself re-reading however. I am glad I persevered through training, it was worth it! To ask other readers questions about The New Recruitplease sign up.

Life will bite you back for it. The first half may seem a little slow to develop, but it gives insight into what new recruits have to go through as it also develops the new character and his difficult past, some of which catches up with him later in the book. The story was okay but could have added more detail between Liam and Mike. It’s basically a guide on how to get into the army and be a soldier. McNab also worked as an instructor on the SAS selection and training team and instructed foreign special forces in counter terrorism, hostage rescue and survival training.
With a stupid revenge plot that made no sense, where a character acted like a total idiot, and got a pathetic resolution.
