The Forgotten Land by: Keith McArdle

This is a manly mans story about an elite unit of Australian solders who try to capture an enemy General. Their mission is thwarted however when an unexpected fire fight breaks out, and they are forced to withdraw thinking they just blew up the intended target. There's a heck of a-lot of detail given to the engagements, to the sights on the soldiers weapons, the vehicle they seem to favor, and a whole lot more. It's set in the time period following the 9/11 attack on America, and brings to light  the efforts, and sacrifices of our beloved Aussie friends whom we appreciate, and love.  A decent book for an adult military fiction lover.
