Summary
This is a book about a clash between very different worlds: the British Army and Britain's Muslim community. It follows a young girl's extraordinary journey from working in the family kebab shop in Manchester to a London barracks where the Colonel of 21 SAS unit is putting women through selection training with the men. Lacking military experience, physically slight and, as a Muslim, socially isolated, Alisha is plunged into the ordeal with 11 other girls and 200 men. She soon realises that physical challenge is the least of her worries
