This gripping story will sweep you into a world of surveillance and intelligence -- gathering, counter-terrorism and hostage rescue!
From the Publisher: He is one of the most highly decorated soldiers alive. He is also the first tobreak the code of silence about the most elite fighting force in the world.What Andy McNab has to say is so explosive that the British government tried tostop him.
A street fighter, a hard case, and a flawless soldier, Andy McNab became one ofthe elite fighting men in "the Regiment"--Britain's covert SAS. His actionsbehind the lines in the Gulf War made him a hero. But the full story of hislife and his amazing career in Special Forces has remained a secret...untilnow.
In harrowing detail, McNab takes us inside the Regiment, chronicling nine yearsof covert operations on five continents. Plunging us into a world ofsurveillance, counterintelligence, and hostage rescue, he takes us behind thescenes on some of their top secret missions. For the first time, he revealsthe shocking details of their training--physically severe, mentally grueling,and sometimes deadly. And he dares to expose some of their highlyconfidential codes and rules--including the one that sanctions murder.
This is the story of the fighting men of the SAS. Here is how they live. Andhere is how they die...
