Part Two recounts Operations Fairfax and Felix, the mission to Afghanistan, and Part Three describes Operation Clover, Tom's activities in the Balkans. Carew's account includes combat action against the Serbian Army, Soviet Spetsnaz special forces and Afghan mercenaries; the high tension of a covert arms buying mission in Poland, Germany and Communist Bulgaria; gritty technical details of secret SAS training operations; and his brief romantic interludes with a British Embassy official and a British Council teacher.

I guess that you CAN fool some of the people some of the time. Book is a total hoax... as is the author!

Try Googling "Tom Carew" & SAS & "con man", & fraud

Real name was Philip Sessarego.

Meantime see:

I was so happy to find this book and I enjoyed it and found it amazing that the leaders or the Head Shed of the SAS would send a single member into Afghanistan to help the Mujahadeen learn to use the Stinger missle. Very good book and an easy read.
