All I can hear is the rustle of the trees hitting themselves. •From Josh: •The sniper rifle is held steadily in front of me, as I tread carefully. The snow is white as a dove and crunches under foot. The sunlight glares into my eyes. •From Miguel: •I hear a chopper come from the sky. The snow starts going mad when it lands on the building. I get on straight away. They get me out of there in the space of five to ten seconds. The enemy troops end up looking like ants. •As I look back there is an explosion on the building where I was standing and I realise how close I was to death.
