This collection of stories in prose and verse is written by a former Special Forces soldier, and is designed to provide a brief insight into the life and mind of a professional soldier – what makes us the way we are, what drives us on when lesser men would fold, what binds us together like no other brotherhood on earth, what makes us laugh and what scares us shitless. The author says, “I have tried to share my experiences honestly, some so dark and painful that I often questioned whether I wanted to remain part of this thing they call the human race. During my time I have served with, and met, people from all walks of life - from world leaders to subsistence farmers. Some I wouldn't have followed in a bus queue or left in charge of an empty pram, but there have been others I would willingly have died for, and nearly did on more than one occasion.

Theodore Knell was born in the East End of London into poverty and a broken home. At the age of six he was taken into care by the Social Services and consigned to the Maudsley Hospital, a mental institution. At ten he was transferred to a state run boarding school for maladjusted children. On leaving school, and in search of somewhere to belong, he joined the British Army. 'From the corners of a wounded mind' are Theodore's reflections on his upbringing and his life as a career soldier.
