Going All The Way is part two of the 'Bootneck Threesome' trilogy and the follow-up to the top ten biography Going Commando, which was featured in Soldier Magazine, the Daily Telegraph and the Weekend Sport. Mark Time's latest military memoir brims with emotion, bouncing between hilarious disasters and sobering confrontation. 'The folly of youth needn't define who we become.' Mark Time Now a commando, yet still more a poster boy for children's underpants than the Royal Marines, Mark Time hones his newfound military skills and discovers the noble art of transvestism. He plunges into a world of sun, sea and sangars, where he jumps between the dystopian world of colonial peacekeeping and the hedonistic lifestyle of a military with no wars to join. Whether he is scuppering fermented diesel in the jungle or being sledgehammered by the unfiltered suffering of conflict, Mark carries a dark secret that weighs heavier than the equipment he carries on his back. Often controversial, this book's provocative nature is certainly not for the faint-hearted, yet is a humorous and uplifting account of a troubled bon vivant. Like his first book, Going All The Way will appeal to a wider audience than the usual military fare, offering insight into many topical issues including military strategy and mental health, all glazed with his synonymous humour, as Mark's ethos lies in 'painting the world with colour'. WARNING: Contains scenes of sex, violence, and commandos wearing lipstick. 'A cross between Jeremy Clarkson and Tom Sharpe' Navy Net. MARK TIME is a former Royal Marines Commando. After the success of Going Commando, Mark has written articles for the national press and been invited to interview on TV and radio.

The Royal Marines were originally formed under the auspices of the Royal Navy to guard its sailing ships from harm. They are proud of their history and origins but the Navy heritage is fading. John Parker charts how the units have moved away from their nautical beginnings to develop, over time, into the most versatile force in the British military, containing one of their most elite brigades. The Royal Marines Commandos have, over the past few years, developed into the premier fighting organisation on land, sea and air. This history deals with events associated with the Royal Marines and subsequently in their commando role, starring in all major conflicts including Italy, Malaysia, the Borneo confrontation with Indonesia, and more recently Afghanistan.

Motherless and sent to an orphanage by his out-of-work father, Tony Collins found the odds were stacked against him as he started life in the rough East End of London. But by joining the Royal Marines, Tony escaped into a new world, fraught with danger and tragedy, but also with the chance for love, friendship and success. Life wasn’t easy for Tony Collins as he grew up in the mean streets of the East End of London in the years before the Second World War. After his mother died when he was still only seven years old, his father, unable to hold down a job while coping alone with four young children, was forced to send them to an orphanage. But Tony came through the hardships and graduated with flying colours from the school of hard knocks, to head straight for a career as a commando with the Royal Marines. During a stint in Malta Tony fell head over heels for a local beauty, and after marrying her he soon began to regard the island as his home. He went on to rise rose through the ranks to become a warrant officer, turning down the opportunity to become a regimental sergeant major back in the UK because it would have meant uprooting his family from the island he had grown to love. The Cockney Commando is a heartwarming story of triumph in adversity and of challenges overcome through love and courage

The men of the SBS are the maritime equivalent of their counterparts in the SAS; they are the elite of the British Special Forces and also the most secretive. Although SAS activity has been extensively documented, the SBS has remained in the state it prefers - a shadowy silhouette, with identities protected and missions kept from public view. Formed during the Second World War, when they took part in many daring raids (one of which was filmed as The Cockleshell Heroes), they were active in the jungle campaigns in the Far East, in the Falklands, the Gulf War and Bosnia. Since this seminal book was published in 1997, John Parker has been privy to much more inside information about the SBS's original operations and he brings the book right up to date with accounts of their exploits in East Timor, Somalia, Sierra Leone, Kosovo and most recently in Iraq.
