about

The Devil's Anvil is Mike Ryan's third book on the conflict in Afghanistan, and one in which he proudly pays tribute to the work of British Forces on the frontline engaged in some of the fiercest fighting seen by the British Army since the Korean War. In this book he tells the story of UK involvement in Afghanistan, the missions and operations that their forces have fought, and what they have achieved in the face of extreme adversity. Included in the book are individual accounts of contacts and actions that have taken place on the battlefields that make up Helmand Province - a deadly war zone in southern Afghanistan that British soldiers call the Devil's Anvil - a place that will always be in their thoughts, on account of the fact that it has cost the lives of hundreds of their comrades and wounded thousands of others. Yet in fighting this complex war there have been many acts of outstanding bravery that have been truly awe inspiring, and many of these are featured within the book - along with details of medals and awards won - including those of two VC recipients. The author also tells the tragic story of those whose personal war will never end as they battle the terrible condition of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), an issue that the author Mike Ryan feels passionate about, as he has specifically written this book - both to raise the profile of this problem and to raise money for those who are suffering.
