35review to come soon i enjoyed this bookto come soon I enjoyed this book a number of reasons but one was the way it was written I mean I believe I could actually see the method of writing whether from taped interviews and transcriptions or from careful notes The book was written the way McNab speaks and that voice is what comes through You get the sense you are being told the story by a gifted story teller the kind of guy you want to hang out with and listen to his stories because first and last he tells a good story The narrative moves from dramatic descriptions and character interaction to explication smoothly beautifully If McNab wrote this without editorial help he has a rare kind of genius I am reminded of Joe Simpson s Touching the Void a first time book that has amazing vividness and pacing and then there s Arabian Sands by Thesiger which has similar vividness Regardless of truth or fact or whether you like tales of men doing manly things Brave Two Zero has literary merit in a number of ways lacking in most fiction today Whether this is viewed as autobiography or fictionalized biography it s a great read What do we pick p a book for anyway Isn t it to be entertained Oy Another pint please Britain s government has spent five years trying to gag Mike Coburn His account of an SAS mission that went wrong is about truth than heroics reports Nick RyanBravo Two Zero For many people those three words conjure p the image of the soldier hero the special forces trooper the kind of cool minded killer who could go anywhere and seemingly do just about anything It was the call sign for a British Special Air Service SAS patrol during a mission in the 1991 Gulf War that was compromised behind enemy lines Three of the eight man team were killed and four captured and tortured while trying to destroy Scud missile launchers in north west Ira One managed to escape by foot across the desert into SyriaFor Andy McNab the patrol s leader and Chris Ryan the soldier who escaped both names are pseudonyms the military blunders led ltimately to remarkable financial success Bravo Two Zero McNab s *lionised account of the mission which was published in 1993 sold millions of *account of the mission which was published in 1993
