Publisher's Summary

The No. 1 Sunday Times bestselling modern classic: A Bravo Two Zero for the Second Gulf War. They were branded as cowards and accused of being the British Special Forces Squadron that ran away from the Iraqis. But nothing could be further from the truth. Ten years on, the story of these sixty men can finally be told.
In March 2003 M Squadron - an SBS unit with SAS embeds - was sent 1,000 kilometres behind enemy lines on a true mission impossible, to take the surrender of the 100,000-strong Iraqi Army 5th Corps. From the very start their tasking earned the nickname 'Operation No Return'. Caught in a ferocious ambush by thousands of die-hard fanatics from Saddam Hussein's Fedayeen, plus the awesome firepower of the 5th Corps' heavy armour, and with eight of their vehicles bogged in Iraqi swamps, M Squadron launched a desperate bid to escape, inflicting massive damage on their enemies. Running low on fuel and ammunition, outnumbered, outmanoeuvred and outgunned, the elite operators destroyed sensitive kit and prepared for death or capture as the Iraqis closed their deadly trap.
Zero Six Bravo recounts in vivid and compelling detail the most desperate battle fought by British and allied Special Forces trapped behind enemy lines since World War Two. It is a classic account of elite soldiering that ranks with Bravo Two Zero and the very greatest Special Forces missions of our time.

Setting the record straight

An excellent book and good to be able to have the record set straight about the M Sqn team of Zero Six Bravo. Shame on those who spoke ill of them; well done lads!

Great story but...

... the narrator ruins it in my opinion. Going to read the book my self instead.

Riveting

Not as entertaining as a first hand accounts like Lone Survivor and American Sniper, due to it being put together by a reporter, but just as riveting!!

Fantastic story read brilliantly

If you're a fan of military non-fiction, this fast-paced, action- packed true story will get you hooked. Interlaced with stories about other missions, the seemingly impossible mission the SBS Squadron are tasked with progresses quickly with ever-increasing desperate situations. The enemy is relentless in their attacks, the terrain is inhospitable and the support from allied forces is woeful, meaning this mission has all the hallmarks of a classic Special Forces operation deep behind enemy lines and makes for a breathtaking read. The narrator has a captivating voice which draws you in deeper with each chapter. Highly recommended.
