Hand Signed by Ollie Ollerton to a Title Page
Hardback 1st Edition
New & Unread - Published 2019
Ollie Ollerton began his military career at the age of 18 when he joined the Royal Marine Commandos and toured operationally in Northern Ireland and Iraq in Operation Desert Storm. After passing SAS selection, Ollerton joined the Special Boat Service (SBS) where he was promoted to team leader. As one of the Directing Staff on Channel 4’s hit TV show, SAS: Who Dares Wins, Ollerton has lifted the lid on this famously secret fighting force as he puts civilians through their elite training paces. In Break Point, Ollerton takes us on his remarkable journey from the age of ten when he survived a mauling from a 130lb chimpanzee in a freak life-or-death incident, to passing the infamously gruelling SAS selection process with a busted ankle and the finish-line nowhere in sight, to saving children from sex trafficker camps in Thailand. Throughout Ollerton focuses on ‘break points’ – moments in life when people refuse to accept their self-imposed limits and go beyond what they think they are capable of. Ollie Ollerton says: ‘Special Forces soldiers aren’t supermen. We’re just ordinary people, with the same frailties and vulnerabilities as everyone else. But ordinary people can achieve the extraordinary"
