The New Recruit

By: Andy McNabb
Location: Fic MCN
Genre: War

So a bunch of Kiwi soldiers are going to remain in Afghanistan, to carry on the work we started as a kind of a respect to the 10 New Zealand soldiers who have perished there while rebuilding communities and protecting them from Taliban insurgents. I wonder what it is like being a soldier there, is it like this book maybe?

It is a thrilling action-adventure produced with assistance from real recruits.
What if your prank killed your best friend. Could you live with yourself?
You try to forget and move on; you enroll in Army training, you want to make something of your life. The training is tough and it almost breaks you. But you survive; you know you’ll make a good soldier.
Finally, when you’re out in Afghanistan, under enemy fire, you come face-to-face with your best friend’s brother. He still blames you for his brother’s death. You now have more to fear than just enemy soldiers.
