Description

Kilo Sierra Five One is part auto-biography, part history book on the policing of one of Britain’s toughest cities; Portsmouth. Written by a police officer who experienced at first hand a turbulent and violent decade, it takes us from his very first days at training school in 1978 right through to the late 1980s and includes national events like the year-long miners’ strike, the Falklands conflict, New Age Travellers, the Greenham Common Peace Camp and the 1987 hurricane. But it is perhaps the local incidents he attended that will make you either laugh, cry or shout out loud in disbelief as he deals with human beings and all their failings, from football hooligans, horrific car chases to night club fights. It is a real life Ashes to Ashes.
