Bravo Two Zero [20th Aniversary Ed.]
The true story of an SAS patrol behind enemy lines in Iraq.
In January 1991, eight members of the SAS regiment embarked upon a top secret mission that infiltrated deep behind enemy lines. Under the command of Sergeant Andy McNab, they severed the underground communication link between Baghdad and north-west Iraq, and destroyed mobile Scud launchers. Their call sign: BRAVO TWO ZERO.
After a fierce firefight, they were forced to escape on foot to the Syrian border. In the desperate days 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, the worst ordeals were yet to come. Delivered to Baghdad, they were savagely tortured.
Bravo Two Zero is a breathtaking account of Special Forces soldiering, a chronicle of courage, endurance and dark humour in the face of overwhelming odds. Believed to be the most highly decorated patrol since the Boer War, Bravo Two Zero is part of SAS legend.
