Fourteen months after the September 11 attacks shook the world, Martin 'Jock' Wallace was awarded his country's third-highest military honour for bravery - the Medal for Gallantry - for his actions in the war against terror in south-eastern Afghanistan.
At the age of thirty-two, working as a signalman in the elite Special Air Service Regiment, Wallace's courage under fire - and inspirational last-ditch counterattacking - during Operation Anaconda helped save the lives of eighty American soldiers and two Australians (including himself), who were ambushed by nearly 1000 al-Qaeda terrorists and Taleban fighters in a life-and-death battle. "Do Or Die" is the true story of a modern-day war hero - a powerful, action-packed account of his desperate eighteen-hour-long battle against the world's most dangerous terrorist group in the heart of their stronghold in Afghanistan.
It is a startling depiction of life in the front line of special forces operations in the war on terror.
