Immediate Action

Andy McNab: Immediate Action (UK 2005)

From the Publisher:
Immediate Action is a no-holds-barred account of an extraordinary life, from the day Andy McNab was found in a carrier bag on the steps of Guy's Hospital to the day he went to fight in the Gulf War.

As a delinquent youth he kicked against society. As a young soldier he waged war against the IRA in the streets and fields of South Armagh. As a member of 22 SAS Regiment he was at the centre of covert operations for nine years - on five continents.

Recounting with grim humour and in riveting, often horrifying, detail his activities in the world's most highly trained and efficient Special Forces unit, McNab sweeps us into a world of surveillance and intelligence-gathering, counter-terrorism and hostage rescue.There are casualties: the best men are so often the first to be killed, because they are in front.

By turns chilling, astonishing, violent, funny and moving, this blistering first-hand account of life at the forward edge of battle confirms Andy McNab's standing in the front rank of writers on modern war.

Andy McNab: Immediate Action. Corgi, ISBN: 0552153583 (November, 2005), 507 p., £8.99.

Immediate Action

Andy McNab: Immediate Action (USA 1996)

From the Publisher:
He is one of the most highly decorated soldiers alive.  He is also the first to break the code of silence about the most elite fighting force in the world. What Andy McNab has to say is so explosive that the British government tried to stop him.

A street fighter, a hard case, and a flawless soldier, Andy McNab became one of the elite fighting men in "the Regiment" -- Britain's covert SAS. His actions behind the lines in the Gulf War made him a hero. But the full story of his life and his amazing career in Special Forces has remained a secret... until now.

In harrowing detail, McNab takes us inside the Regiment, chronicling nine years of covert operations on five continents. Plunging us into a world of surveillance, counterintelligence, and hostage rescue, he takes us behind the scenes on some of their top secret missions. For the first time, he reveals the shocking details of their training -- physically severe, mentally grueling, and sometimes deadly. And he dares to expose some of their highly confidential codes and rules -- including the one that sanctions murder.

This is the story of the fighting men of the SAS.  Here is how they live. And here is how they die...

Andy McNab: Immediate Action. Island Books, ISBN: 0440222451 (August, 1996), 512 p., $7.50.
