Bravo Two Zero (retro review)

by Michael Asher

This is the true story of a British SAS squad sent behind the lines early in the first Iraqi war to destroy SCUD missile bases and launchers.  From the get-go, this mission was compromised and turned into a harrowing flight for life for these men.

The escape and evasion turned into a fight against nature (exposure in winter desert), enemy patrols, and even civilian goat herders…  The eventual capture of the book’s author, Andy McNabb (squad leader) and others led to torture, deplorable conditions of capture, and eventual release to the Red Cross near the war’s end.

This book is an awesome read for anyone who believes that we may see this same type of war happening here in America from which some of us may be required to perform the same type of escape from our own government…
