No Front Line has been ten years in the making. This is one of the most important investigations Chris Masters has ever undertaken. No other journalist in the country has been given the unprecedented access Chris has had to all levels of Australia’s Special Forces from Commando and SAS operators on the ground to top command. Nor has any book covered the full breadth of Australian Special Forces operations in Afghanistan. Chris describes missions that have been unreported until now. He also confronts the controversies and grievances. No book, no report, no investigation has opened up the world of Australian Special Forces to public view as No Front Line.
'In this remarkable book about the intense combat environment experienced by our soldiers in Afghanistan, Chris Masters captures the highs, the lows, the courage and the sacrifice of Australian warriors and their loved ones in our longest war.' - Air Chief Marshal Sir Angus Houston AK, AFC (Ret’d)
