About the Author
joined the infantry as a boy soldier. In 1984 he was ‘badged’ as a member of 22 SAS Regiment and was involved in both covert and overt special operations worldwide.
During the Gulf War he commanded Bravo Two Zero, a patrol that, in the words of his commanding officer, ‘will remain in regimental history for ever’. Awarded both the Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM) and Military Medal (MM) during his military career, McNab was the British Army’s most highly decorated serving soldier when he finally left the SAS in February 1993. He wrote about his experiences in two phenomenal bestsellers,
Bravo Two Zero
, which was filmed starring Sean Bean, and
He is also the author of the bestselling novels,
. His new novel,
, will be available from Bantam Press later in the year. Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and the UK.
Acclaim for Andy McNab:
‘McNab’s great asset is that the heart of his fiction is non-fiction: other thriller writers do their research, but he has actually been there’
‘McNab is a terrific novelist. When it comes to thrills, he’s Forsyth class’
Mail on Sunday
‘Addictive . . . Packed with wild action and revealing tradecraft’
‘Firmly established as one of the UK’s top thriller writers, McNab draws heavily from his experiences in the world’s most highly skilled special forces unit to make his fiction explosive, pacey and authentic’
‘The word page-turner seems coined for McNab’s work’
