Andy McNab and Bravo Two Zero
In the Gulf War, Andy commanded the famous Bravo Two Zero patrol, an eight man patrol tasked with destroying underground communication links between Baghdad and north-west Iraq and with finding and destroying mobile Scud missile launchers. The patrol infiltrated Iraq in January 1991, but were soon compromised. A fierce fire fight with Iraqi troops ensued and the patrol was forced to escape and evade on foot to Syria. One of the four taken prisoners, Andy was held for six weeks and was relentlessly and savagely tortured.
