|Plot Summary of Bravo Two Zero|
|"Bravo Two Zero is the radio call sign for a British SAS patrol dropped off behind enemy lines during the Gulf War. Their mission was to destroy Iraq Scud missile sites that threatened Israel. They are compromised and have to attempt to make it seventy-five miles through the desert to Syria. Some are killed, one makes it, and the rest are captured. Author Sgt. Andy McNab vividly describes the torture he and his imprisoned comrades endured in the bottoms of Iraq jails until they were eventually released; battered and bruised, but unbroken."
