I didn’t ready myself; I lived the lie that I’d be experiencing a new beginning where everything was going to be cool once I’d woken up on my first day outside of the military. Er ist brutal echt, spart sich selbst nicht und hat Humor -nicht alles ist tragisch, es sind auch lustige Anekdoten.

I know this because when I reunited with them again at a party a year or so later, they were understanding and accepting. I have no idea what I learned from it apart from the trite "it's good to talk and men should do more of it". That’s something of an understatement when you consider some of Foxy’s anecdotes… Having a pistol held to his head by Pablo Escobar’s personal hitman, helicopter crashes in unnamed warzones, or gun battles where the 30-strong squad is surrounded by 200-plus enemy fighters. Cbt and emdr are both useful in the right context, but we really need to drop the ‘one size fits all’ approach. Battle Scars tells the story of Jason Fox’s career as an elite operator, from the gunfights, hostage rescues, daring escapes and heroic endeavours that defined his service, to a very different kind of battle that awaited him at home.From deployment in Afghanistan to walking to the North Pole, Jason highlights what it takes to develop emotional resilience from working within some of the most pressurised environments on earth. I found his therapeutic relationship with the civilian psychologist who so ably supported and empowered him particularly striking - this comes across very strongly in the book, and in such a thought-provoking manner. Everyone high fives and says, “we did an amazing job,” and then buggers off and gets on with the contract.

The book had a good flow between going back to past missions and how it affected him and was relevant to his present day. With my next expedition in the North Pacific Ocean on the horizon I'm on the lookout for companies with a strong sustainability value to come onboard as a sponsor and partner.

He is a man who has experienced a lot in life – composing through extreme jobs in his British Army roles as well as a simple guy from England living his own life – Jason has a lot to say.

Jason was recruited as one of the instructors on Channel 4’s SAS: Who Dares Wins, in which civilians are put through the physical and mental rigours of Special Forces training and selection. Every time Foxy goes into details about his experiences of war, his projects since, his struggle with PTSD and how he’s helping people through similar situations today, I was gripped. I soon realized that my mindset in the fallout of leaving the military hadn’t been too dissimilar to what many other people go through when they lose their job, or when they break up with a partner. But when he woke up the next day he felt lower than ever and, now that he wasn’t part of the forces, alone. But with time, like the phases on Selection, my honest self-assessment, while difficult, became doable.When people let situations run away from them and don’t take care of the situations, it can go wrong. The journey of the book is validating, the voice honest and authentic, the military history neither glorified nor airbrushed.
