'A fast-paced, thrilling account of British heroism, brave men surrounded and fighting against overwhelming odds. This is the real, sometimes shocking, and deeply personal story of modern warfare and PTSD.' Andy McNab

'This hugely timely book reveals in gripping detail the personal stories of its hidden victims - lest we forget.' Damien Lewis

Trapped in an isolated outpost on the edge of the Helmand desert, a small force of British and Afghan soldiers is holding out against hundreds of Taliban fighters.

Under brutal siege conditions, running low on food and ammunition, he experiences the full horror of combat. As the casualties begin to mount and the enemy closes in, Evans finds both his leadership and his belief in the war severely tested.

Returning home, he is haunted by the memories of Afghanistan. He can't move on and his life begins to spin out of control.

Under the Bearskin was previously published as Code Black.

An excellent read, the pressures of command and combat intercut with the pressure of subsequently trying to make sense of what happened, how he reacted and whether it was worth it. - Robert Crampton, Sunday Times Magazine
