Chris Masters is Australia's foremost investigative journalist. In Uncommon Soldier he explored the nature of Australian soldiering from recruitment to being on the front line in Afghanistan. His descriptions of battle are some of the most powerful reporting from that war. No Front Line takes this story even further, to the heart of Special Forces and its war in Afghanistan, a war the Australian public know very little about. Implicitly trusted by Special Forces, Chris gives voice to these soldiers. He takes us right into the centre of some of the fiercest combat, opens up the story of the relationship between the Australians and their US partners and provides the most intimate examination of what it is like to be a member of this country's elite fighting forces.
Masterfully told, No Front Line will be as controversial as it is revealing. It will also find a place as one of the finest contemporary books on soldiering.
