‘One of the best first hand accounts of fighting piracy off Somalia, from a man who is no stranger to danger’
Phil Campion – Ex-SAS, best-selling author and Sky News presenter

Jordan Wylie, a young man from a tough area of Blackpool where kids like him often went off the rails, opted instead for a life in the army. He saw service in Iraq and learned to cope with the horrors he’d witnessed, then suffered an injury that blocked any chance of climbing up the military ladder.
But an old army colleague suggested he join a security team on a tanker in Yemen. Ex-servicemen were offered dazzling salaries and ‘James Bond’ lifestyles between jobs protecting the super-tankers carrying consumer goods to Europe and the US. However, for the men tempted to go, the price they paid was the claustrophobia and isolation of life on board and the ever-present possibility of death skimming towards them across the vast, lonely blue sea. Jordan was one of these men. In Citadel, he writes the first account of these dangerous years from someone ‘at the front’. A young soldier from the backstreets of Blackpool, he was determined to make the most of his life, but unsure of the way forward. To his surprise, he found his answers in the perilous waters of ‘Pirate Alley’.
