Publishers Description: On 2 September 2008, in eastern Afghanistan, Trooper Mark Donaldson made a split-second decision that would change his life. His display of extraordinary courage saw him awarded the Victoria Cross for Australia, making him the first Australian to receive our highest award for bravery since 1969. Yet Marks journey to those crucial moments was almost as exceptional as the acts that led to his VC. He was rebellious even before the death of his father in his mid-teens. A few years later, his mother disappeared, presumed murdered. Marks lifestyle could have easily led him further down the path of self-destructiveness and petty crime. But he took a different road: the army. It proved to be his salvation. He found himself a natural soldier, progressing to the SAS, the peak of the Australian military.One of the most impressive memoirs published by a serving member of the Australian militaryWEEKEND AUSTRALIAN This is not some public relations puff piece, this is a heartfelt work by a substantial man HERALD SUNA mature and generous account, revealing of himself and Australias longest war, still poorly understood at home Chris Masters, SYDNEY MORNING HERALDThe transformation from zero to hero that Donaldson describes... is testament to what can be achieved through sheer determination WEEKEND AUSTRALIAN
