What happened in the province of Helmand de Sangin de la Vallée in spring 2007 was nothing short of extraordinary.After the last breath of defence of the house platoon by the Paras who preceded them in the theatre, the soldiers of the Royal Anglian Regiment arrived in Afghanistan, who are charged with taking on the fight to the enemy.Despite the brutality of debilitating illnesses, the ensuing tour became a bloody lesson in how to conduct the offensive of the war’s infantry.During a six-month tour of duty, the “Vikings” fighting group unleashed hell in heavy combat, the relentless fights that saw teenage soldiers from battle to the end of the feet against the Al Qaeda and Taliban warriors at unprecedented levels of ferocity.In the Red State Attack, Colonel Richard Kemp, former Commander of the 1st Battalion Office, Royal Anglian Regiment, and Chris Hughes, the Daily Mirror Security Correspondent, tell the story of the Royal Anglian deployment for the first time.Combining the strategic vision of 3 Par with adrenaline in charge of sniper sniper adrenaline, they produced the most dynamic, concrete and visceral account of the war in Afghanistan that was ever written
