From the SAS soldier who invented the modern military memoir comes a storming battering ram of thrill-packed, unforgettable drama.
Never-before-revealed covert operations and heartbreaking human stories combine to create a new classic and a book that takes us back to where it all began… SEVEN TROOP is Andy McNab’s gripping account of the time he served in the company of a remarkable band of brothers – from the day, freshly badged, he joined them in the Malayan jungle, to the day, ten years later, when he handed in his sand-coloured beret and started a new life. The things they saw and did during that time would take them all to breaking point – and some beyond – in the years that followed. He who dares doesn’t always win…
‘Paying tribute to the soldiers he served with for 10 years, he tells the poignant story of five brave men of whom, tragically, he is the only one still alive. *****’ News of the World
‘Brutal, touching, and humorous, this book recounts McNab’s time in the SAS’s Air Troop. It made me realise that he can fight as well as write. Treading in the footsteps of Sassoon, Brooke and Owen he pretty much founded the genre of the modern military memoir.’ Professor Kevin Dutton, University of Oxford
