Every individual SPECOPS operator, whether from a military, law enforcement or intelligence agency background, needs to be able to survive in a high risk environment. Such survival must be achieved without weaponry or any form of logistical back-up. During such encounters, tunnel vision occurs and it is difficult, if not impossible, to perform complex or fine motor movements. The key to survival in any hostile environment involving close quarter combat is to have a system that is simple, yet brutally effective.

Resource icon The Sixteen - John Urwin. Author rebbonk Creation date Mar 22, Well, I asked for this book and what can I say?

As a semi-entertaining read, this one almost hits the spot and apart from a few glaring spelling and grammatical errors is quite readable. The art of being a fiction writer is to get the reader to suspend all belief as they enter your world. To a large extent this book does that. Without revealing the story too much, for some reason a young guy doing national service in the Royal Pioneer Corps is picked for special operations type work and is whisked away on covert and deniable operations with the other members of this mysterious group called The Sixteen.

The author claims that he was put under some sort of influence hypnosis? For a novice joining an established team, he certainly seems to be full of himself and coming up with all the best ideas.

Of course, he claims that the others were only letting him do this in order to enhance his training, build his confidence and bring him up to speed.

Oddly enough, he never seems to contemplate that bullets can do him a lot of damage with all of his close quarters fighting methods. He was such an asset, he was simply allowed to walk away. I must commend the author for having a first class imagination. As I say, an escapist read, with a few large-ish holes in the plot. More resources from rebbonk. Bird A good read but hard work.
