From the blurb:
There were three patrols that fateful January 1991 morning: Bravo One Zero, Bravo Two Zero and Bravo Three Zero. In the opening hours of the Gulf War, the SAS were flown deep behind enemy lines, on a mission to hunt down Saddam's Scud missiles, the use of which threatened a Third World War.
The men of Bravo One Zero stepped off the chopper, took one look at the flat desert devoid of any cover and decided no way were they deploying into all of that. With Bravo Two Zero, Andy NcNab's patrol were fatally compromised, all bar one getting captured or killed.
And then there was Bravo Three Zero. These men were different. Thought differently. They treated as gospel the SAS's saying that 'any fool can be uncomfortable'. They deployed with vehicles, and while there was nowhere to hide, they could make a dash for the border if desperate.
Even as warnings came in that McNab's patrol was on the run, Bravo Three Zero remained undetected - the furthest Coalition forces behind Iraqi lines. Slipping through enemy positions, a string of targets were taken out. But with the desert turning bitter and snow starting to fall, they were forced to fight a running battle against the elements as much as the enemy.
Though overshadowed by the fate of Bravo Two Zero, the achievements of this highly-decorated patrol are the stuff of elite forces legend. Now, for the first time, SAS veteran Des Powell reveals their story in gritty, blow-by-blow detail. Written with acclaimed military author Damien Lewis, this is a tale of edge-of- the seat daring deep inside enemy lands. Brutal, savage, unrelenting - prepare to be blown away, in a tale that proves utterly the SAS motto - who dares wins.
