Description

When British and American forces invaded Iraq in April 2003, their intelligence operations got to work looking for the WMD their governments had promised us were there. They quickly realised no such weapons existed. Instead they become faced with an ever-increasing spiral of extremism and violence that was almost impossible to understand, let alone contain.

This book tells the story of what happened next, one of the most dramatic and sustained operations in our recent military history. Up against the wall, under the aegis of the joint forces commanded by Major General McChrystal, our men moved into action using the wide variety of aircraft and weaponry at their disposal. Combining intelligence with brute force, the SAS went on the attack, night after night targeting Al-Qaeda and other insurgent groups with an intensity never before practiced by the service, destroying the terrorist threat and saving lives.

    Incredibly well-reserched by a guy who knows his stuff and is trusted by his sources. This isn’t a book of dits, it isnt B20 - is a piecing together of how SF and intelligence has developed to take doen a contemprary threat. And yes, you get to learn something about the pace, temp and pressure of seriving in the UKSF. Harder to stay in than get in?, this book more than any other I’ve read demonstrares the parallels of being in the National Rugby Squad and UKSF - though the toll on the latter is immeasurable heavier. If you want a cheap book of easy reading, macho bragging and foreigner-killing - this is not the one for you. Stick to McNabb.

    Just finished this, very informative, although at times a difficult read, if your into UK special forces literature, this goes into more detail about what you may have read in the press about UKSF missions in Iraq. Check it out.

    I can't understand how this ebook version is only one pound cheaper than the actual paperback copy as sold in bookshops. Furthermore, the paperback version includes several pages of photographs/pictures which do not appear in this ebook version. I want the photos that accompany the paperback book, either that or a full refund on this purchase...
