INTERNATIONAL BEST SELLING AUTHOR OF BRAVO TWO ZERO IN HIS EXPLOSIVE TRUE STORY
“A gripping account of special forces at work . . . a tremendous adventure story.”–Daily Telegraph
“The best account yet of the SAS in action.”–Sunday Times
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
What people are saying about SEVEN TROOP:
★★★★★ "From the heart of a true warrior"
★★★★★ "Seven Troop is yet another well written account of SAS actions on a much more personal scale, literally "a day in the life" thereof."
★★★★★ "What he does differently in this book compared to his two others is describe the costs of being SAS. How he and others react to the deaths of their friends when they are killed on operations, the political decision making of the higher ups that override tactical common sense, being a small cog in a big machine and ultimately not being very valued by SAS headquarters."
