DANGER, EXCITEMENT, TENACITY, RESILIENCE, OPPORTUNITY AND SUCCESS
From boy soldier to paratrooper, private security operator to successful business entrepreneur. This is the story of a natural-born warrior with the vision and determination to chase and achieve his dreams despite multiple challenges, extreme danger, numerous manic drinking sessions, and a few screw-ups along the way.
Despite a fear of heights, he passed into the Paras and patrolled the streets of West Belfast. Despite a lack of sea legs, he protected shipping lanes from Somali pirates. He faced the Mujahideen in Afghanistan, outwitted the insurgents in Iraq and worked alongside revolutionaries in Libya as they fought to oust Gaddafi.
He lived and worked with diverse people from all walks of life, from local tribesmen in Sudan, to the Nigerian mobile police units in the Niger Delta. He worked the bars and night club doors of London and protected the ultra-rich and famous in their castles and mansions around the world.
His career tracked many of the world’s most recent conflicts and wars, and he witnessed first-hand as recent history’s most notorious dictators were brought down. With stoicism, a large helping of military humour and a down to earth attitude of getting the job done he survived bombings, shootings, and rocket bombardments, the constant threat of IEDs or being captured by insurgents. This is the story of no ordinary man.

THE HISTORY OF THE PARACHUTE REGIMENT
THROUGH THE EYES OF THOSE WHO SERVED
Providing an insight into the men who make up this illustrious fighting force. Timed perfectly to coincide with the Regiment’s 80th anniversary on the 1st August 2022, and brings readers right up to date with the regiments history.
This book homes in on and clearly dissects like no other has before it, what really makes a paratrooper tick. It reveals what makes them better, man for man, than other infantry regiments in the British army and what it is that has made the Paras the feared fighting force they have become in the eyes of those who have had the misfortune to come up against them on the field of battle.
Written from a unique inside out perspective by a former paratrooper and author in his own right, Jason Woods follows the history timeline from the regiment’s birth to today, and clearly highlights how the regiment has continuously evolved as the battlefield conditions have changed, whilst always maintaining the core standards and ethos, which are embodied in the regimental motto ‘Utrinque Paratus’, ready for anything.
