Braver Men Walk Away Summary
Just about to retire from Scotland Yard, where he is a top bomb-disposal officer, Peter Gurney is regarded as an expert on dealing with explosives and terrorist devices. Since he began his career defusing bombs in post-Nazi Berlin, Burney has spent more than 40 years in the army and the police services courting death while trying to protect others. His autobiography explains the mystery of such men's extraordinary courage in protecting others and provides a first-hand account of the fight against terrorism, from the back streets of Belfast to Lockerbie, from the Brighton Grand Hotel bombing to the Middle East to the IRA's latest mortar attack on the British cabinet.
