 If Christmas shopping is always a chore this book is the answer. Not only is it a fantastic read, but £1 from the sale of each book goes to the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund.

After a successful 18 year career in The Royal Marines, Nathan Sawyer is at a crossroads in his life, wondering which path to follow. Fate takes a hand when he witnesses 2 Serbian men beating up a young girl. He intervenes, rescues her and discovers she is a Montenegrin, called Elena Borovic. She and eleven other girls were kidnapped in Belgrade and for over a year have been forced to live as sex slaves in Liverpool. A rescue is mounted for the remaining girls which plunges Sawyer and his team into the middle of a gang war.

2012 Injured Royal Marine calendar

The latest fundraising project from the Royal Marines Association has seen them spend the last 6 months tirelessly working with injured Royal Marines to produce the first injured soldier calendar. The calendar features 12 lads with a range of injuries and illnesses that are not necessarily battlefield related but each one has faced and overcome adversity in some shape or form and has came out of the other side smiling. The idea behind the calendar was to show that after having a life changing incident it's not all doom and gloom and that a lot of positives can come from one negative. It is also to show the determination, spirit and cheerfulness in the face of adversity that has become world renowned with the Royal Marines.

Afghanistan: 10 years on

Taken from Defence News

A decade after UK Forces began operations in Afghanistan, Tristan Kelly reports from Helmand as all eyes look forward to the planned end of UK combat operations there in 2015.

In the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the US and the Taliban regime's refusal to hand over those responsible, US and UK forces launched Operation ENDURING FREEDOM on 7 October 2001.

The operation's aim was to end Al-Qaeda's use of Afghanistan as its base for terrorist operations. Five years later UK troops moved into the Taliban stronghold of Helmand with the same essential aim of not allowing Afghanistan to once again become a safe haven from which terrorists can launch attacks on the streets of Britain.
