|Notes:||They were British Special Forces, trained to be the best. In January 1991 a squad of eight men went behind the Iraqi lines on a top secret mission. It was called Bravo Two Zero. In command was Sergeant Andy McNab. Dropped into "scud alley" carrying 210-pound packs, McNab and his men found themselves surrounded by Saddam's army. Their radios didn't work. The weather turned cold enough to freeze diesel fuel. And they had been spotted. Their only chance for survival was to fight their way to the Syrian border seventy-five miles to the northwest and swim the Euphrates River to freedom. Eight set out. Five came back. This is their story. Filled with no-holds-barred detail about McNab's capture and excruciating torture, it tells of men tested beyond the limits of human endurance...and of the war you didn't see on CNN. Dirty, deadly, and fought outside the rules--Page 4 cover.|
