McNab's account of an SAS mission in which he led an eight-man patrol deep behind enemy lines in the Gulf War. It is a chronicle of courage, endurance and dark humour in circumstances for which McNab and his men became what is believed to be the most highly decorated patrol since the Boer War.
On the night of 22nd January 1991, at a remote airfield in Saudi Arabia, under cover of darkness and in conditions of the utmost secrecy, eight members of the SAS regiment boarded a helicopter that was to infiltrate them deep behind enemy lines. Their call-sign was "Bravo Two-Zero", and their mission, under the command of Sergeant Andy McNab, was to sever the underground communication link between Baghdad and north-west Iraq, and to seek and destroy mobile Scud launchers before Israel was provoked into entering the war. As a result of what followed, Bravo Two-Zero became what is believed to be the most highly decorated patrol since the Boer War. This is McNab's account of the mission - a chronicle of courage, endurance and dark humour in the face of extreme cold, enemy attack, capture, and torture of a savagery and relentlessness for which not even their intensive SAS training had prepared them.
