Publisher's Summary

January 1991: IRAQ. Eight members of the SAS regiment embark upon a top-secret mission to infiltrate deep behind enemy lines. Under the command of Sergeant Andy McNab, they are to sever a vital underground communication link and to seek and destroy mobile Scud launchers. Their call sign: BRAVO TWO ZERO.

Each laden with 15 stones of equipment, they tab 20km across the desert to reach their objective. But within days, their location is compromised. After a fierce fire fight, they are forced into evasive action. Four men are captured. Three die. Only one escapes.

For the survivors, however, the worst ordeal is yet to come. Delivered to Baghdad, they are tortured with a savagery for which not even their intensive SAS training has prepared them.

Twenty years from its first publication, Bravo Two Zero still sets the gold standard for military memoirs. It is a breathtaking account of Special Forces soldiering: an action-packed chronicle of superhuman courage, endurance, and dark humour in the face of overwhelming odds.

    "Terrible Narration"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The Narrator is rubbish, he read each sentence like a declaration... VERY disappointing - ruined the book for me and I couldn't concentrate on anything but the narration. Too bad Andy didn't narrate the account himself, because this is an EXCELLENT read!


    Would you be willing to try another one of Paul Thornley’s performances?

    NO

    "Exceptional story and brilliant narration"

    The accounts are incredibly well detailed and gripping. Truly one of the best audio books I have experienced regardless of genre. Paul Thornley's performance is wonderfully engaging and I found myself wanting him to just keep talking. One of the very few books I wished would not end.

    "Worthy of being called a "Classic""
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bravo Two Zero - 20th Anniversary Edition to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read the print version, so can't compare, but the unabridged audio did not disappoint


    What other book might you compare Bravo Two Zero - 20th Anniversary Edition to, and why?

    The closest comparison I can make to any audio book I've listened to is Keith Richards' autobiography. Different subject matter of course, but similar in that they are very well written accounts of people who have actually achieved incredible things (as opposed to your average lightweight celeb-ography)


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Probably the bits near the beginning where they're stealing each others' equipment and have to be on guard for others pinching from them. It reminded me of my part of the NHS where we have hotdesking


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    How many people really have the balls to do this kind of stuff???


    Any additional comments?

    Recommended. If it wasn't a true story, you'd hardly believe some of it

    "Gripping & humbling"

    Bought this book 10-15 years ago, but never got around to reading it. So glad I listened to this audiobook. A truly humbling listen that really gets across the things the members of our military do for this country. A genuine British hero, as were all of his team.
