They were like a band of brothers...
In 1983 Andy McNab was assigned to B Squadron, one of the four Sabre Squadrons of the SAS, and within it to Air Troop, otherwise known as SEVEN TROOP.
This is Andy McNab's gripping account of the time he served in the company of a remarkable group of men - from the day, freshly badged, he joined them in the Malayan jungle, to the day, ten years later, that he handed in his sand-coloured beret and started a new life.
The links they forged then bound them inextricably together, but the things they saw and did during that time would take them all to breaking point - and some beyond - in the years that were to follow. He who dares doesn't always win...

Andy Mcnab describes the men beneath the uniform as mere mortals. A simple truth about the men whom the common folks put their trust upon to defend to defend their freedom. It's very humbling. A very wonderful piece of literature.
If you have read Immediate action dont waste time with this, its the same stories rehashed with less detail
I found this really enjoyable, I learned as much about his mates as I did the author.
"Better than the abridged version. Amazing!"
Title says it all really. There is no reason you should not buy this audiobook. It tells the story of one of the most intriguing and courageous characters of our time; Andy Mcnab, and his time in 7 troop SAS squadron.
Inspirational.. a must 'listen'! Paul Thornley brings Mcnab's books to life!
""Interesting insight to the troop""
Interesting book, some funny an sometimes sad tales of the men an friends of seven troop. Well read , a good audio book.
I enjoyed reading Bravo Two Zero, the actual book version, but this is rubbish!
The story, and the guy reading it are painful.
I shall be returning it, I can't endure anymore, it is so dull, and has 'chapters' every few minutes, where no chapter is needed, it just continues on as if turning a page.
"give it a go"
first audio book that I listened too and really loved it. Easy to listen and very enjoy.
Absolutely fascinating read from start to finish. A must have to anyone's collection. Buy it!
Fast pasted and gripping and a true reflection on what our forces go through not just in combat but also the aftermath and being a veteran.
"Gripping from start to end"
I have always enjoyed Andy McNab's fictional and factual work. Seven Troop gave a brief insight into McNab's special forces career, I found myself hoping for a happy ending for himself and his comrades knowing full well it wouldn't happen. McNab's emphasis on challenging opinions on PTSD should be applauded. I found the narrative well paced and exciting with interesting recounts of contacts and day to day activities within Seven Troop.
interesting well written, but I will say compared to his friends, Andy Mcnab seems quite uninteresting. .
