SPIN ZHIRA: Old Man in Helmand is the unauthorised, unvarnished and irreverent story of one man’s midlife crisis on the front line of the most dangerous district in Afghanistan where the locals haven’t forgiven the British for the occupation of 1842 or for the Russian Invasion of 1979. Of course, all infidels look the same so you can’t really tell them apart.
Here are ten reasons why you should read it:
- SPIN ZHIRA is a true story of love, service and adventure that lifts the lid on the British mission in Afghanistan.

- SPIN ZHIRA reveals not only the courage and heroism of Britain’s Armed Forces but also the unique sense of humour that sustains them on operations.
- Not every Taliban is a terrorist. SPIN ZHIRA explains why ordinary Afghans felt compelled to take up arms against the infidel invaders.
