A true story of a mission to Iraq, that went wrong, written by Andy McNabm, the Team Leader. Should be read first as it gives a better "BIg Picture" of the mission and its goals. You won't come away with kind feelings.
There is a companion book "The One That Got Away" by Chris Ryan, who was a member of the Team. Both books shoud be read to get the full picture.
Very good war books!!

From the back cover: "In January 1991, eight members of the SAS regiment embarked upon a top secret mission that was to infilitrate them deep behind enemy lines. Under the command of Sergeant Andy McNab, they were to sever the underground communication link between Baghdad and north-west Iraq, and to seek and destroy mobile Scud launchers. Their call sign: BRAVO TWO-ZERO.
Each man laden with 15 stone of equipment, they patrolled 20 km across flat desert to reach their objective. Within days, their location was compromised. After a fierce firefight, they were forced to escape and evade 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, however, the worst ordeals were to come. Delivered to Baghdad, they were tortured with a savagery for which not even their intensive SAS training had prepared them."

Great book. It was hard for me to put it down. The author does a great job putting the reader right there with him through his ordeal. This book should be turned into a movie!
