Author Name    McNab, Andy.

Title   BRAVO TWO ZERO.

Publisher    Bantam, London, 1993, reprint.

Seller ID   24368

374 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 059303421X Colour and b&w photographs, drawings. "On the night of 22 January 1991, at a remote airfield in Saudi Arabia, under cover of darkness and in conditions on utmost secrecy, ei ght members of the SAS regiment boarded a helicopter that was to infiltrate them deep behind enemy lines. Their mission, under the command of Sergeant Andy McNab, was to sever the underground communication link between Baghdad and northwest I r a q , a nd to seek and destroy mobile Scud launchers before Israel was provoked into entering the war. Their call-sign: Bravo Two-Zero. Each man laden with fifteen stone of equipment, they patrolled 20 km across flat desert to reach their objec ti ve a nd fi nd a hiding place before first light. Within days, their location was compromised. The Iraqis attacked with armour, and after a fierce firefight the patrol was forced to escape and evade on foot to the Syrian border, 120 km to the nor thw est . T hat first night, in pitch darkness and weather cold enough to freeze diesel fuel, they covered 85 km - farther than two marathons. In the desperate days that followed, though stricken by hypothermia and other injuries, the patrol ' went bal list ic '. Fo ur men were captured. Three died. Only one escaped. But in their wake lay 250 Iraqi dead and wounded. For Andy McNab and the other survivors, however, the worst ordeals were yet to come. Delivered to Baghdad, they were tort ured with a s ava gery and relentlessness for which not even their intensive SAS training had prepared them. This book is a breathtaking account of Special Forces soldiering in all its strength, ingenuity and aggression. It is also a chronic le of super human cou rage , end urance and dark humour in the face of overwhelming odds." Very light browning to pages and edges of text block. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds. Very Good/Very Good
