Dont just accept what is said,
This review is from: The Real Bravo Two Zero: The Truth Behind Bravo Two Zero (Paperback)
I have read both Brave Two Zero and The Real Brave two zero.
What I would say is, read the books and make up your own mind, It might be difficult to accept, but at the end of the day, We can only go on the words of the authors, so one book can not be said to more 'true' than the other.
Yet when Michael Asher, just through simple deduction, can put holes in McNab's story it seems to question the likly hood of the BTZ story.
Yet As always, Hind Sight is always 20-20, plus BTZ was behind enamy lines, under that kind of stress i think even the best might make mistakes.
Plus the events which McNab is reacalling at the breafing, was after his term as a Pow, thats a long time to have rememberd details such as distances walked and so on. Is it not possible he simply recalled incorrectly? yet could it simply be that McNab was right, Ryan Wrong, and Asher has simply been lied too.
Therefore I would say that from only using the books, its impossible to say who is correct. Read them take from what you will but just remember, none can be shown to totaly certain so dont take sides but view with an open mind.
