They were like a band of brothers...
In 1983 Andy McNab was assigned to B Squadron, one of the four Sabre Squadrons of the SAS, and within it to Air Troop, otherwise known as SEVEN TROOP.
This is Andy McNab's gripping account of the time he served in the company of a remarkable group of men - from the day, freshly badged, he joined them in the Malayan jungle, to the day, ten years later, that he handed in his sand-coloured beret and started a new life.
The links they forged then bound them inextricably together, but the things they saw and did during that time would take them all to breaking point - and some beyond - in the years that were to follow. He who dares doesn't always win...

If you have read Immediate action dont waste time with this, its the same stories rehashed with less detail
I found this really enjoyable, I learned as much about his mates as I did the author.
"Better than the abridged version. Amazing!"
Title says it all really. There is no reason you should not buy this audiobook. It tells the story of one of the most intriguing and courageous characters of our time; Andy Mcnab, and his time in 7 troop SAS squadron.
Inspirational.. a must 'listen'! Paul Thornley brings Mcnab's books to life!
Absolutely fascinating read from start to finish. A must have to anyone's collection. Buy it!
Fast pasted and gripping and a true reflection on what our forces go through not just in combat but also the aftermath and being a veteran.
"Gripping from start to end"
I have always enjoyed Andy McNab's fictional and factual work. Seven Troop gave a brief insight into McNab's special forces career, I found myself hoping for a happy ending for himself and his comrades knowing full well it wouldn't happen. McNab's emphasis on challenging opinions on PTSD should be applauded. I found the narrative well paced and exciting with interesting recounts of contacts and day to day activities within Seven Troop.
interesting well written, but I will say compared to his friends, Andy Mcnab seems quite uninteresting. .
"Action all the way"
A great action story
All of it
No I have not
When he told of how he lost his mates
Cards on the table, well written and an incredible but sad story when you think of the tragic loss of lives outside of a warzone... Tremendous book I defy any one to read it and not get a lump in the throat.
There's not a lot wrong with this book. It's easy to listen to, owing to short chapters. The story itself raises a few questions but they don't need answering. I was genuinely entertained and captured by this book.
