This book sheds some light on the 06B escapade which genereated many unfounded accusations and claims.
It Shows how useless and incompetent modern day Intel actually can be and it's consequences for People working on it in a George "Double" Bush artifical war of unnecessitiy.
I really enjoyed Bloody Hereoes by Damian Lewis...this book doesn't live up to it. It's very readable and a real life account...but you put it down and somethings missing...
Part of the Story just seems to bog down in the wadi of death with the vehicles, especially the ones that dont blow up...this Story never really seemed to "explode" either as promised.
The SAS/SBS blokes certainly wont mince 368 pages of profantiy infused prose on this tale round the campfire. They'll say:
"60 guys went out on Land Rovers and Quads...60 guys made it out sans Land Rovers and Quads...based on pure luck and the fog of war, nothing more nothing less."
And that says it all.
