Publisher's Summary

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...

    Story
    "humourous, tragic, action packed."

    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.

    "Great read"

    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.

    "Incredible"

    Cards on the table, well written and an incredible but sad story when you think of the tragic loss of lives outside of a warzone... Tremendous book I defy any one to read it and not get a lump in the throat.

    "Funny, sad and a touch inspirational..."

    I have only recently listened to Bravo Two Zero and Immediate Action, both of which I really enjoyed, so I was very pleased when I found Seven Troop. I love Andy's writing style, it always makes me feel like he's telling me a story over a drink in a pub somewhere. I found the book funny, inspirational and incredibly sad, I pretty much cried for the last hour of listening. I did want to read Nish's story and managed to get my hands on a copy of his book l, Freefall, which I would also highly recommend, a very honest account of his illness and life.

    Story
    "Best Book Ever!!!!!"
    Would you listen to Seven Troop again? Why?

    Yes, for many reasons, this is in effect an Andy McNab Autobiography. Having read all his novels I now see why they are so successful... Having spent 16 years in the mob, I can relate so much to this Biography, but Andy really managers unselfishly to bring all the other personalities to the forefront making them the hero and not him....


    What did you like best about this story?

    Andy's humbleness is refreshing, his honesty about himself was amazing a real and true legend. Other similar book written by other authors, just didn't/don't manage to achieve this. Probably because these authors didn't have the real life experiences that Andy has?


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The earlier chapters, about Andy's experiences were awesome and fast moving, I really felt like I was on the edge of my seat... :)


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The final chapters were heart wrenching, I found myself crying as the sad truth of the effects of PTSD on members of the most elite unit unfolded, I assume all my fellow Falkland vets will/have done the same... :(


    Any additional comments?

    This is by far the most meaningful book I have ever had the privileged to listened too or read.The book left me feeling so many different emotions, joyful, amusing and of course sad, but more importantly it has given me the impetus to help PTSD sufferers. As a former serving Para/APTC member I like Andy have (up to now anyway) come away fairly unscathed, however, close friends have not been so lucky. I would like to thank Andy & his book for bringing to the forefront the ongoing battle to change peoples perception of mental illness...Finally I will never read another book written by the ex STAB, who now runs a pig farm ?? lol :) ....... and nor should you!!

    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "Brilliant, just brilliant"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book . Felt an overwhelming sense of sadness for the amazing friends he lost on the way. However, I got the sense that his success is not only testament to his incredible character but a medium by which all those special people who entered his life can still live on.
