About the Author
From the day he was found in a carrier bag on the steps of Guy's Hospital in London, Andy McNab has led an extraordinary life.
As a teenage delinquent, Andy McNab kicked against society. As a young soldier he waged war against the IRA in the streets and fields of South Armagh. As a member of 22 SAS he was at the centre of covert operations for nine years – on five continents. During the Gulf War he commanded Bravo Two Zero, a patrol that, in the words of his commanding officer, 'will remain in regimental history for ever'. Awarded both the Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM) and Military Medal (MM) during his military career, McNab was the British Army's most highly decorated serving soldier when he finally left the SAS.
Since then Andy McNab has become one of the world’s best-selling writers, drawing on his insider knowledge and experience. As well as several non-fiction bestsellers including Bravo Two Zero, the biggest selling British work of military history, he is the author of the best-selling Nick Stone and Tom Buckingham thrillers. He has also written a number of books for children.
Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK, works in the film industry advising Hollywood on everything from covert procedure to training civilian actors to act like soldiers. He continues to be a spokesperson and fundraiser for both military and literacy charities.

The barman told me they were making room for new ones, and would I like to choose a few.
I thought well, why not, if I don't read them I've made room for some more, if I read them then I've started reading again!!!
So, the 3 books I chose were 2 Andy McNab books, and one other, a similar genre book.
The first two I read were Nick Stone books.
Thrilling, absorbing and totally addictive.
Having read them both within a week I was hooked not only on the Genre, but on Andy Mcnabs portrayal of life, and how things happened.
Then, last week, I bought Bravo Two Zero!!!!
Well, in fact I bought it on my wife's account, thanks my love.
And to say I was hooked was an understatement.
I lived and breathed every twist, every turn, every punch, every kick, the highs, the feeling of being out of sight, running for your life, the freezing cold, the feeling of losing control, gaining control, not knowing where Andy's colleagues were, I felt like I was there, as the 9th member, willing them on.
I could go on and on, and keep gushing about how incredibly awe inspiring this man is, but his books do that for me.
To end this i will say thank you Andy McNab, for doing what you did, for queen and country, keeping us all safe, and above all, for telling us all about it in such detail.
Not only have you started me reading again after so many years, you've opened my eyes (And after I've told my family over and over about this chapter, that chapter) to just now lucky we are to have you hidden heroes amongst us!
God bless you, and God bless those dear friends you lost, to make us all feel safe!!!!!
Reading this makes me realise how lucky we are that there are people willing to put themselves in harm's way in order to keep us safe.
His other non-fiction account of his life, Immediate Action, is also a good read, but I don't know about his fiction books.
I'm half way through the book now and totally immersed ,it's not an easy read but you really get a feel for what it must have been like to get captured by foriegn troops willing to behead westeners!!!
