The command came: 'Stop those vehicles!' It was like a red rag to a bull. Instantly streams of 7.62mm tracer and 50mm calibre machine gun rounds arced across the night sky and smashed into the bus and truck. Elite SAS Patrol Commander Stuart 'Nev' Bonner takes us inside the extraordinary and dangerous world of secret combat operations in this explosive, behind-the-scenes look at life inside the SAS. A world where capture means torture or death, and every move is trained with precision detail to bring elite soldiers to the very peak of fighting ability. In a career spanning twenty years, fourteen of them in the SAS, Bonner shares with us the inside story of being out in front - and often behind enemy lines.
