(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Where is your break point? Is it here? Facing the gruelling SAS selection process on one leg, with a busted ankle and the finish line nowhere in sight? Or here? Under heavy fire from armed kidnappers while protecting journalists en route to Baghdad. Or, is it here? At the bottom of a bottle, with a family in pieces, unable to adapt to a civilian lifestyle, yearning for a warzone. We all have break points to face - at the gym, in the office, in our personal lives - those moments of self-doubt where we have to dig deep, and find something within to grab hold of and push us through. Ex-Special Forces soldier Ollie Ollerton has faced his own break points and now he tells us the lessons he has learnt along the way. From survivor of a freak childhood attack to elite fighter, Ollie's incredible story features, high-speed shoot-outs, counter-terrorism and humanitarian heroics. Special Forces soldiers are not supermen. Bullets don't bounce off them. They don't hit the target with every shot. They have the same vulnerabilities and doubts as the rest of us. But ordinary people can achieve the extraordinary, under the greatest pressure, in the most challenging situations. Ollie's life has taught him that everyone has the capacity for incredible achievement, because it's only when it's crunch time, when you're down to your last bullet - when you're at break point - that you find out who you really are.
AUTHOR: Matthew 'Ollie' Ollerton is a former Special Forces soldier and a member of the Directing Staff in Channel 4's hit show SAS: Who Dares Wins. Ollie's military career began at the age of 18 when he joined the Royal Marine Commandos and toured operationally in Northern Ireland and in Iraq for Operation Desert Storm. After completing the gruelling 6-month-long SAS selection process, Ollie joined the Special Boat Service (SBS). During his six years in the SBS , Ollie's missions included, counter narcotics, counter-terrorism, homeland security, counter insurgency operations and humanitarian efforts. Upon leaving the Special Forces, Ollie worked in Iraq as a private security contractor before heading to South-East Asia, using his incredible military training to benefit the lives of those less fortunate. While working for a charity, he was lead command of a three-man team bravely infiltrating child trafficking rings, rescuing children and bringing them to safe houses.
