An open approach to this account by Mcnab
, 2 Jan. 2010
This review is from: Bravo Two Zero (Paperback)
I have read this book several times and it makes for compelling reading. There is no denying that Mcnab embroiders situations posssibly on more than one occcasion but you cannot take away their bravery and determination to survive in the most extreme situations against appalling weather conditions and in the case of the captured 4 cruelty.
Having also read The Eye of the Storm by Peter Radcliffe I cannot understand why he delights in grinding Mcnab into the earth. Ok so they went in on foot against advice but did they have the right equipment no! Were their radios working propertly no ! They were dropped in the wrong place because their maps were wildly inaccurate and they discovered to their cost & horror they were on top of an Iraq camp near enough. So Mr Radcliffe would it have helped if they had taken vechicles apart from their immediate withdrawal because they would have been heard anyway. Remember Mcnab has had to live with his decisions he made on that fateful tour. The loss of his men and mates and you Mr Radcliffe haven't because you were not even there.
