Siege? Bomb threat? Terrorist alert? Shooting spree? The Sons of God are who Australia turns to in times of extreme crisis.

The SOG's top-secret methods, advanced training and incredible bravery have made them the ultimate urban warriors in the war against high-level crime and terrorism. This book details the birth of the 'Sons of God' and revisits 12 dramatic incidents: the Port Arthur Massacre, the bombing of Victorian Police headquarters, a wild gun battle with Neo-Nazis and more. All are told in the voices of the 'Sons' who were in the maelstrom, did their duty and somehow came out alive.

Author Heath O'Loughlin is the son of a 'Sons of God' commander. He watched his bomb technician father leave the house on 'calls outs', never knowing where he was going or if he would return. Heath has been given exclusive and privileged access to SOG case files and interviewed 19 'Sons', all of whom are going on the record for the first time, narrating their hell-raising and heretofore secret adventures in high-octane recollections guaranteed to give readers a feel of what it was to be there.

    From the interview I first heard on 3AW with Neil Mitchel and the author I could not wait to receive the book , totally riveting and to quote an Old Cliché " Once started you cannot put it down " ,to hear the behind stories of the guys that make up the SOG's and actually live and breath the day to day encounters , I thoroughly recommend this book to any one.
