Two Ranks On The Road, 35 Years of Australian Special Forces Service (2024)

This book tells, in extraordinarily honest and vivid detail, the story of a military life. This is a story of a man who never took a backward step, never shied away from danger, and who was a vital and formative force in developing the early careers of some of Australia’s most prominent soldiers and military leaders. This book traces Mick Malone’s entire military career, including his time in combat as a trooper with 3 Squadron SAS in Vietnam, his influence in developing innovative counter-terrorism and Vehicle Mounted techniques across Australia, his tenure instructing at the Royal Military College (Duntroon), his time as Regimental Sergeant Major of 1 Commando Regiment (Sydney) and as 2IC of SAS Training Squadron (Swanbourne).
