The Blades: Sarajevo follows Danny Archer, a new member of the SAS who travels to Sarajevo as Bravo Troop Seven look to track down wanted war criminal Radic.
The book is a short story and successfully shows that much of the time is spent waiting, although does not dwell overly on that, which keeps the book moving at a good pace throughout. There is humour whilst the soldiers are waiting, with much mickey taking amongst the troops. The action is well described and moves along rapidly, with firefights containing enough detail to build an excellent picture, but not so much that the story gets bogged down. A combination of being a short story and a fast moving plot meant it did not take long to read and for anyone looking for a good action story, I would recommend this.
