From the Back Cover:

For anyone who wants to know about the SAS, about British military action since the war, or who simply wants to read the compelling life-story of the most charismatic of leaders, 'Looking for Trouble' is essential reading.

"A commander who made men do almost impossible things by doing them himself first... A soldier who from the most undisciplined and unpromising beginnings achieved complete mastery of himself and the men who fought under him"

"The SAS is where he found his calling. The wars he fought – in Malaysia, Oman, Borneo, Aden and the Falklands – form a roll-call of Britain's post-Second World War battle honours. De la Billiere tells the story of the action with modesty, in simple but gripping prose."

"Naughty boys should not be allowed to read this book, for it shows that persistence in the planning and execution of escapades that break all the rules can lead to the status of national hero."

"An amazingly modest general, a loner from a searing childhood. His autobiography is fascinating not only for his derring-do soldiering career, mostly with the SAS, but his sense of endless quest and ease in taking risky decisions."
