Andy McNab, Sergeant, SAS, joined the British infantry as a boy soldier. In 1984 he was "badged" as a member of the SAS--the British special forces--and has since been involved in elite intelligence and combat 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 forever." After six months of medical treatment immediately following his release by the Iraqis, Andy McNab was back on active service. He remained with the SAS until February 1993, at which time he was the most highly decorated soldier in the British Army. He is also the author of Bravo Two Zero.
