Description

Stringing together both fact and fiction, BLITZ IRAN tells the story of ex-Special Forces trooper Mike Braddon, who, with his bolshie partner Carl Nichols, take up employment in a disintegrating Iraq, working for a private security company, as cover for their secret service work as covert operators. Supposedly under the employ of a shadowy rogue section of the CIA's revamped Special Activities Division - a highly secretive US counter-terrorist unit - Mike and Carl are recruited by Major Christian Mason, an old commanding officer from their days in the SAS, to take part in a series of black operations against various targets in Iran, in order to destabilise the country through a strategy of tension. After causing a trail of devastation across the country's south-western province of Khuzestan, through a series of assassinations, the total destruction of a jihadi training camp, and the ambushing of a missile convoy, their final mission is to destroy certain nuclear devices which have been temporarily stored in the warehouse of a pharmaceutical plant, after fire has destroyed a nearby Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps storage bunker they were being stored in. With the mission going awry, their backup team obliterates the plant with a full-scale mortar attack, and as the chemical tanks go up, the resulting explosion demolishes the suburbs of the nearby city of Abadan. Then after a hair-raising escape back to Iraq, their handler warns the two men that both the American and the British secret services want them silenced for the part they played in the missions, and fleeing for their lives, they then face a dangerously fraught journey along Highway 8 leading to the Khabari Crossing which accesses Kuwait, and after being ambushed along the way, they then face a series of vicious firefights, before eventually seeking temporary refuge in Kuwait, before flying back to London.show more
