4.0 out of 5 stars Levelling the balance, 10 Dec 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The One That Got Away (Paperback)
During the Gulf War an 8 man patrol was compromised behind enemy lines without any radio communications. Despite local Iraqi forces being put on alert, the patrol refused to give up. Of the eight, 3 died, 4 were captured and 1, Chris Ryan, escaped. I came to this book having read Andy McNabb's Bravo Two Zero. I was at times disturbed Andy's 'Boys own' attitude. This was a refreshing change. Instead of presenting shortages of equipment, intelligence and support as challenges, Chris Ryan describes them as what they are: failure to support front line soldiers. He gives an insight into the 'Regiment' at war when it was in its largest formation since World War II. If you've read Bravo Two Zero, I strongly reccomend you read this as well.
