In “Contact” the author recounts his experiences of two tours in Northern Ireland (in Belfast and Crossmaglen) as a Commander with Britain’s elite Parachute Regiment during the blood soaked 1970’s.  Soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan comment on how relevant the book still is today, as the dangers, political agendas and religious roots underlying the conflict are eerily and heartbreakingly similar to their own recent experiences. Feel what it’s like to live each day with senses on high alert, waiting to be shot by a sniper or blown-up by a well-hidden bomb.  Enter the mind of a soldier ordered to hold the lines in an ancient quarrel they have little affinity for, but whose consequences are deadly.
