They were like a band of brothers ...In 1983 Andy McNab was assigned to B Squadron, one of the four Sabre Squadrons of the SAS, and within it to Air Troop, otherwise known as Seven Troop. This is Andy McNab's gripping account of the time he served in the company of a remarkable group of men - from the day, freshly badged, he joined them in the Malayan jungle, to the day, ten years later, that he handed in his sand-coloured beret and started a new life. The links they forged then bound them inextricably together, but the things they saw and did during that time would take them all to breaking point - and some beyond - in the years that were to follow. He who dares doesn't always win.

Andy McNab joined the infantry as a boy soldier. In 1984 he was 'badged' as a member of 22 SAS Regiment and was involved in both covert and overt special operations worldwide. 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 in February 1993. He wrote about his experiences in two phenomenal bestsellers, Bravo Two Zero, which was filmed starring Sean Bean. Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK. He is also patron of the Help is 4 Heroes campaign.

As I read McNab's two other accounts 'Bravo Two Zero' and 'Immediate Action' many times, I feel that this book is somewhat incomplete or fragmented... I found many paragraphs taken from 'Immediate Action', in unaltered form and the story itself unfolded only a few new details. I did not feel that this 'band of brothers' thing, i.e. focusing on the teammates worked very well, even if I admit that PTSD should be emphasized more in the media and in other books. This is the topic the author should have dealt with much more.
Perhaps McNab should write about his experience on war reporting as did Ross Kemp.
