In 2006, while part of an unarmed UN peacekeeping team at the border junction of Lebanon, Israel, and Syria, Australian Major Matina Jewell and her colleagues were caught in a full-scale war with tragic consequences. In the days that followed she and her teammates reported hundreds of violations of the peace agreement as Israeli artillery, tank fire, and aerial bombs, as well as rockets fired by Hezbollah fighters, exploded only meters away and shrapnel rained down around them. But the story does not end there. Matti Jewell is the kind of soldier every country is proud to have-fearless, honorable, and highly skilled. A star graduate from Duntroon by the age of only 24, she became a highly valued army commander. In the years that followed, she earned eight war medals, tracking militia leaders in the Solomons, fast-roping out of Navy helicopters, and boarding smuggler ships in the Arabian Gulf, as well as serving on operations with the American Navy SEALS and Australian Special Forces. Caught in the Crossfire is a frighteningly dramatic first-hand account of what really happens in modern warfare and the high price our soldiers pay for their country. Quantity Available: 1.
