Sarah Broadhurst's view...

This wasn’t the only book on the fated mission behind enemy lines in the first Gulf War, there was Peter Ratcliffe’s The Eye of the Storm and Chris Ryan’s The One That Got Away, but there was something about McNab’s story that captured the public’s imagination. I think it was the publisher’s brilliant publicity which had McNab with his face blacked out and then once read, folk started talking for this really is unputdownable.

A "Piece of Passion" from the publisher...

Bravo Two Zero was the original non-fiction thriller - it's been much imitated but never bettered. Action-packed, visceral, exciting and with genuine peril, it's perfect!' Bill Scott-Kerr, Publisher at Transworld

If you like Andy McNab you might also like to read books by Vince Flynn, Patrick Woodrow and Matthew Reilly.

Synopsis

Bravo Two-zero by Andy McNab

In January 1991, eight members of the SAS regiment embarked upon a top secret mission that was to infiltrate them deep behind enemy lines. Under the command of Sergeant Andy McNab, they were to sever the underground communication link between Baghdad and north-west Iraq, and to seek and destroy mobile Scud launchers. Their call sign: Bravo Two Zero. Each man laden with 15 stone of equipment, they patrolled 20 km across flat desert to reach their objective. Within days, their location was compromised. After a fierce firefight, they were forced to escape and evade on foot to the Syrian border. In the desperate action that followed, though stricken by hypothermia and other injuries, the patrol 'went ballistic'. Four men were captured. Three died. Only one escaped. For the survivors, however, the worst ordeals were to come. Delivered to Baghdad, they were tortured with a savagery for which not even their intensive SAS training had prepared them. Bravo Two Zero is a breathtaking account of Special Forces soldiering: a chronicle of superhuman courage, endurance and dark humour in the face of overwhelming odds.

About the Author

Andy McNab

Andy McNab joined the infantry as a boy soldier. In 1984 he was 'badged' as a member of 22 SAS Regiment and was involved in both covert and overt special operations worldwide. During the Gulf War he commanded Bravo Two Zero, a patrol that, in the words of his commanding officer, 'will remain in regimental history for ever'. Awarded both the Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM) and Military Medal (MM) during his military career, McNab was the British Army's most highly decorated serving soldier when he finally left the SAS in February 1993. He wrote about his experiences in three books: the phenomenal bestseller Bravo Two Zero, Immediate Action and Seven Troop.

He is the author of the bestselling Nick Stone thrillers. Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK. He is a patron of the Help for Heroes campaign.
