If you get through this you deserve the MC

Described as 'a thrilling insight into the way this country's (Australia's) SAS soldiers are selected and trained' - the bit I have issue with here is thrilling - thats a little off the mark. When you're used to Andy McNab and Chris Ryan, this book stands out for being such a disappointment - basically nothing happens and it may have been more interesting if it was an audio recording of someone reading the numbers between 1 and 10,000.

Bravo Two Zero has been jazzed up, it has been said that 'Andy' has done a dis-service to other members of the patrol - I wasn't there (or was i) ... but it was a good read. Thats one of teh key points of a good book - enjoyment! Such books about the SAS zing out as 'I want to know about this world of the elite and their covert ops' and I dont believe the difference is down to location.

This is just not a great book.
