Bravo Two Zero was the code-name of the famous SAS operation: a classic story of bravery in the face of overwhelming odds. Bravo Two Zero by patrol commander Andy McNab became an international best-seller, as did the book by Chris Ryan (The One That Got Away). Both men became millionaires. Three members of the patrol were killed. One, veteran sergeant Vince Phillips, was blamed in both books for a succession of mistakes. As Michael Asher reveals, the stories in these two books grew considerably in the telling. Their heroic tales of taking out tanks with their rocket launchers, mowing down hundreds of Iraqi soldiers, the silent stabbing of the occasional sentry, were never mentioned at their post-war debriefings. In an investigation literally in the footsteps of the patrol, one step ahead of the Iraqi police, Michael Asher tells the true story.

The Regiment at Sterling Lanes in Hedfordshire were not pleased with the first book and I found this book to be more interesting although still not as exciting as the tall tales both Andy Mcnab and Chris Ryan told to make more money. Pretty bad an elite professional takes cheap shots at dead men on his fatal patrol.
