Description

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Battle Scars by Jason Fox.

This is a true story. The events depicted took place during the last decade in an unnamed warzone. The names and locations have been redacted to protect the security of those involved and the practices of the British Special Forces. Out of respect for the KIA and survivors, everything else has been told as it happened.... 

Jason Fox served with the SBS for over a decade, thriving on the close bonds of the Special Forces brotherhood and the ‘death or glory’ nature of their missions.

Battle Scars tells the story of his career as an elite operator, from the gunfights, hostage rescues, daring escapes and heroic endeavours that defined his service to a battle of a very different kind: the psychological devastation of combat that ultimately forced him to leave the military and the hard reality of what takes place in the mind of a man once a career of imagined invincibility has come to an end. 

Unflinchingly honest, Battle Scars is a breathtaking account of Special Forces soldiering: a chronicle of operational bravery and of superhuman courage on and off the battlefield.

Took me a lot of time to read

The accent Foxy had made it hard for me follow..

But I enjoyed the appendix. This real story gets me into a new world I haven't been through before (the life in military) and how hard it is.

I deeply felt the part about self rediscovering and stop thinking about past faults or worrying about the future, just think about the moment (think like a kid).


Thank you Foxy for opening up and sharing your experience. I wish I can meet you one day in the UK. Have a joyful life. ❤️

Good story, mechanical-ish narrating,

When starting, the first chapters the narrating was somewhat mechanical, it really felt like 'reading text', not telling one's story (which is what i expected since the narrator is the writer?). Once i got used to Fox 's voice and 'narrating' style , it became bit better.
The content is solid, i hope him tellin his story about what he went through and what he really felt can help others still being ashamed of mental troubles.

Fabulous!

I truly enjoyed Foxy's honest story of his battle with PTSD that resulted from his war experiences, and his inspiring path to recovery.
