Battleground – Book Review

Teenager Ben Tracey was quite simply in the wrong place at the wrong time – and his world has been turned upside down.  Captured and held hostage in Afghanistan, he is caught up in events beyond his control amid one of the most dangerous battle zones in the world. 

Worse still – one of his kidnappers is carrying a nuclear bomb in a suitcase and is planning a terrorist attack that could lead to the deaths of millions of people.  Can Ben escape and give a warning?  Then the SAS get involved.  This action packed adventure will undoubtedly appeal to teenage boys. 

Given Chris Ryan’s own military background in the SAS it is no surprise that the action is authentic and believable.  He writes about a world with which he is familiar and knows how to bring it alive.
