Warrior Training: The Making of an Australian SAS Soldier
Acclaimed SAS soldier Keith Fennell takes the reader on a journey through his development as a soldier and as a man, revealing the challenges that the warrior must overcome in order to perform at the highest level.
At just 21 years of age, Fennell became one of the youngest soldiers to have passed the SAS selection course, which is widely (and accurately) recognised as one of the most demanding challenges a soldier will ever face. Designed to separate the true warriors from wannabe action heroes, the gruelling three-week course requires extreme fitness, mental excellence and total commitment. Successful soldiers then have to successfully handle 'resistance to interrogation' training, as well as a prisoner-of-war camp and other punishing ordeals.
Yet the hardest challenge Fennell ever faced was leaving the SAS behind to become a stay-at-home dad.
