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.

Tom Marcus wurde vom MI5 rekrutiert, um sein Land zu schützen – undercover gegen interne und externe Bedrohungen, den Terror und zum Schutz der größten Geheimnisse des Landes. Tägliche Entscheidungen, die Leben oder Tod bedeuten. Ein nie enden wollender Kampf, den viele seiner Kollegen nicht überleben sollten. Bei einem seiner Einsätze nahm er die Identität eines verwahrlosten Obdachlosen an – und stellte bei einem Verdächtigen außergewöhnliche Verhaltensweisen fest. Zeichen, die vielleicht niemand außer einem ausgebildeten Agenten bemerkt hätte. Tom ließ das Haus stürmen. Gefunden wurden einige Gewehre und sechs selbstgebaute Bomben. Diese hätten, so zeigte sich später, 60 Schulkinder töten sollen, die sich auf der Rückfahrt von einer Klassenfahrt befanden. Dieser fesselnde Bericht über einen Krieg, der um unserer Sicherheit willen geführt wird, weiht uns in eines der am besten behüteten Geheimnisse Europas ein – den britischen Geheimdienst MI5.

Major Matthew Carr is a professional soldier who has served in Iraq and Afghanistan. When faced with a cancerous invasion of his body, Matthew used the expert training he learnt in the Australian Army as a strategy to wage his own fierce and relentless battle with an enemy force. In January 2002, Matthew Carr was 25, ten foot tall and bullet proof. Not only was he trained and well prepared for war, he was looking for a fight. That same month, Matthew was diagnosed with testicular cancer. He suddenly found himself in a battle that he had not been expecting, and it certainly wasn't the type of fight he had been hoping for. In Battle Scars we learn that the main principles employed by militaries in the conduct of Counter Insurgency Operations can be applied to modern life as much as fighting cancer.

Over a decade ago, the publication of Divided Houses ushered in a new field of scholarship on gender and the Civil War. Following in its wake, Battle Scars showcases insights from award-winning historians as well as emerging scholars. This volume depicts the ways in which gender, race, nationalism, religion, literary culture, sexual mores, and even epidemiology underwent radical transformations from when Americans went to war in 1861 through Reconstruction. Examining the interplay among such phenomena as racial stereotypes, sexual violence, trauma, and notions of masculinity, Battle Scars represents the best new scholarship on men and women in the North and South and highlights how lives were transformed by this era of tumultuous change.

Stuart O'Grady is an inspirational but very human sports hero, and Battle Scars is an enthralling read for anyone interested in elite sport. In 2007, when Stuart O’Grady abandoned Stage 8 of the Tour de France after crashing on a descent and fracturing eight ribs, a shoulder blade, collarbone, three vertebrae (not to mention puncturing his right lung), cycling seemed over for Stuey. But ‘Mr Indestructible’ – who had become the first Australian to win the Rock of Roubaix earlier that year – got back on his bike. By 2013 Stuart O’Grady had competed in 17 Tours; secured Olympic and Commonwealth Games medals; been named Australian Cyclist of the Year, and Australian Male Road Cyclist of the Year; won the inaugural Tour Down Under; and earned an Order of Australia Medal in recognition of his contribution to the sport. But then came the worst time of his life, when he announced his retirement after such an impressive cycling career and revealed that he had used the performance enhancing drug EPO before the 1998 Tour de France – a Tour marred by widespread doping. In this up-front and honest autobiography Stuey reveals all. This is his story: as candid and down-to-earth as the man himself.
