Larisa Brown

«Escape from Kabul is savage, adrenalin-fuelled, brutally honest, compelling, and essential reading. Wood and Jones are a dream team writing about a nightmare. Their writing style is perfect: highly-charged and vivid one moment, cold and analytical the next. The authors are soldiers turned writers and have clearly won the trust of their contributors. These are the stories that soldiers tell each other when the press and politicians have packed up and moved on. These are the real stories of the men and women who snatched honour from the jaws of humiliating betrayal and defeat»

Ben Timberlake

«Escape From Kabul explains through personal knowledge and eye-witness testimony the bravery, endurance and professionalism of men and women tasked with achieving the near-impossible»

Stuart Ramsay, Chief Correspondent, Sky News

«Wood and Jones have done an excellent job of translating that chaos into a powerful narrative, replete with human drama and - to some extent - horror. It is certainly compelling and disturbing reading»

Mail on Sunday

«An important account of one of the defining moments of the modern world»
