Publisher's Summary

On April 29, 1980, British police assured Iran that their embassy was secure. The very next day, terrorists stormed the embassy and took 26 hostages. With the Iranian government willing to let the hostages become martyrs, and the British government only willing to talk if the terrorists surrendered, 26 lives hung in the balance.
What followed was six days of tension and terror. It was finally ended when the SAS launched a daring rescue mission, broadcast live on television. Millions held their breath, waiting to see the outcome of Operation Nimrod.

Excellent Narration of an Interesting Event!

If you could sum up Operation Nimrod in three words, what would they be?

Interesting. Surprising. Informative.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It is. What makes is so is the excellent narration by Phillip Mather.

Any additional comments?

The narrator once again proves his skills in narration. Mr. Mather proves to be the quintessential voice for bringing history to life. I can easily picture the narrator as a favorite college professor, regaling his students with his talent to bring what could be ordinary historical tales to life in a way that both fascinates and educates.

A Riveting Performance of a Great Historical Momen

Nobody does it better than Mather (Phillip J. Mather) When it comes to historical non-fiction. His meter and tempo accentuate rather than trample on the story which is wonderfully written. BRAVO
