From the Back Cover:

When Jenny Simpson married she joined a unique band of women – the SAS wives – and entered a world of secrecy and danger that few outside it could begin to imagine.

'Biting the Bullet' reveals the rivalry and betrayal behind the bravado and camaraderie, the intense pressure that so often leads to domestic violence and marital break-up, a life that is at once exhausting and exhilarating.

It is also the story of a passionate and fiery relationship that survived against incredible odds, an enduring love affair that kept two people emotionally inseparable from the small-town world of Hereford to the jungles of Belize, the bleak mountain-tops of the Falklands and the deserts of Iraq.

‘In this compelling autobiography, Jenny Simpson reveals the turmoil behind closed doors…The army's top brass have stopped SAS men telling their stories. They could not ban this book.’
THE SUN

‘For the first time – life within the SAS from the wife's point of view. Ian Simpson was a key player and Jenny's account of their marriage is a survival story in its own right.’
ANDY McNABB, author of 'Bravo Two Zero'

About the Author:

Jenny Simpson joined a unique band of women when she married – the SAS wives – entering a world of secrecy and danger that few outside it could begin to imagine. Jenny nursed her husband through malaria, shared with him the burdens of his undercover work in Northern Ireland, and was one of the few women brave enough to take up an offer to visit the Killing House and learn for herself some of the tricks of her husbands trade.
