The point man leads the patrol into battle, looking for signs of danger. He is the first to face ambushes, hidden bombs and snipers. Few survive for long. Between 2007 and 2008, 20-year-old Kenny Meighan was the longest-serving point man in Helmand province. An exceptionally skilful and brave private, he was lucky to make it home alive. But in his hometown in Essex, where prospects are bleak and his father still suffers from the nightmares of his own war experience, Kenny's struggle is far from over.

Review:

An important book, PTSD sufferers are casualties just as much as anyone wounded in battle. --Andy McNab

More visceral than any fiction. What's so good about Townsend's account is the way that Kenny and his dad emerge as far more than symbols. They are flesh and blood. You know what it feels like to kill. --Peter Preston, Guardian

A brilliant, must read. --Rosie Boycott

Mark Townsend tells a story politicians don't want to hear. Written with elegance and compassion, this book should make you angry. --Ken Loach
