Also clearly highlights the skill and expertise of our special forces - we are blessed to have such brave and courageous people defending our country and our rights.
Having read all of the main texts on the Bravo Two Zero debacle, I would have liked this book to have explored more of the similarities in failure. At one point in the book Lewis says that lessons were learned from Bravo Two Zero, but after reading the book it hardly seems the case, save for the use of vehicles and the issue of cold weather clothing. The incredible intelligence failures could have been explored more...or perhaps Lewis didn't want to turn it into an analysis of where it all went wrong. For me, the book could have benefitted from an in depth post script covering the post mortem that must surely have taken place. In a way the almost unbelievable repeat of such a clusterf*** was the really interesting story, and that was not investigated.
The action is repetitive. Ok that might be how it happened, but somehow it became frustrating to read. It would probably transfer to screen better than it does on paper.
The book is a good read if you appreciate stories about human spirit, and the incredible will to survive. It is hard to read without thinking how you might cope yourself in such a situation, and realising you wouldn't at all. You leave the book with a great respect for everybody involved (except for those behind the desks who dreamed it up)
Any who is interested in modern history this is worth a read.
