FREE READ à Immediate Action Andy McNab  1 FREE READ 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 himA 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 I have always been fascinated by the various Special Forces I had heard about Andy McNab s Bravo Two Zero and when I saw that this book is about his days in the SAS I decided to give it a try Written in simple language and liberally interspersed with soldier s lingo this book chronicles his early days as a juvenile delinuent his service as a Green Jacket in the infantry his obsession with the Regiment SAS and what grueling tests and training people undergo for the privilege of being a member of one of the most elite special forces unit in the world and of course his various missions in different continents while in the SAS I enjoyed his detailed descriptions of the rigorous trainings the planning and hardships involved in any mission whether it is for providing protection to someone intelligence gathering or conducting a raid on a drug manufacturing plant in the deep jungles of some Latin American country Gun fight is a small part of the operations and in many cases the work is to be done under absolute secrecy a small mistake can jeopardize the whole mission and endanger the lives of people The danger is not only from armed enemies but can be from nature tooMcNab has also written about the difference in nature of the people in the SAS the wild parties the different arms and ammunitions used by them etc In short he has tried to give a complete picture of the SASAt times the writer tries to be funny too eg he has made fun of his own academic aptitudeThe parts about his string of divorces owing to his obsession with his work is a bit annoying but this man is writing down his memoir so I understand a little bit about his personal life would be there I was expecting a small section on his mission in Ira but it was not there This may be because it is the subject matter of Bravo Two Zero Overall it is a decent read if you are interested in this sort of non fiction books If you want some great gun fights and action then you are better off with a Frederick Forsyth or Robert Ludlum novel

FREE READ à Immediate Action Andy McNab  1 FREE READ Cenes 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 murderThis is the story of the fighting men of the SAS  Here is how they live   And here is how they d The way to evade dogs is to get on flat open ground the handler said If you start running along riverbeds it just keeps the scent in those areas Running over a stream is lack shit use too he panted as we jogged along behind the dogs All the dog does is a thing called casting on the other side and he ll pick up the scent again If you get into a wide open field the scent is dispersed You want to do a lot of zigzagging which slows the dog down makes it harder for him to pick up your scentblisters The army was full of recipes for how to get rid of the things but I had always found that the best thing was to pierce them at the edge with a needle sterilized in a flame sueeze all the muck out and just throw plaster overNo one hassled us all they would say was Parade is twelve o clock and just expect us to be there If we weren t it must mean we didn t want to be there so we could goIf you ve got something but you re not too sure whether you can eat it you rub it on your skin and see if there is a reaction Then you wait and a couple of hours later rub it on your lips and see if there s a reaction then on the tip of your tongue then around your gums Then you just taste a little bit then eat a little bit and if there s no reaction you take the chance and eat itIf the humidity is than 75 percent as it is in the jungle the sweat evaporation isn t going to work We were sweating loads but the sweat wasn t evaporating So the body heat was rising and we were sweating even The way the body tries to get rid of that is by sending blood to the skin so therefore the vessels have to increase in size The heart rate increases and sometimes it gets to a rate where its automotive function loses control and it starts to go all over the place Less and less blood flows to the internal organs It s shunted away from the brain so the blood that goes there is going to be hot anyway The brain doesn t like hot blood going to it so it responds with headaches dizziness impaired thinking and emotional instability Because we were sweating so much we were losing loads of electrolytes sodium and chlorides and the result was dehydration We were losing noncirculating body fluidsThe contents included a razor blade a spare compass water sterilizing tablets matches and bits of magnesium block to start fires with a magnifying glass a heliograph and a condom This last piece of kit wasn t in case we got lucky on the top of the Black Mountains a condom can be used to make a catapult collect water in or even as an emergency flotation deviceBelize we were told at the briefing was formerly the colony of British Honduras and lay on the Caribbean coast of Central America About the size of Wales it had a population of 170000 mostly black English speakers but there was also a growing number of Spanishspeaking refugees from El Salvador In the eighteenth century the British in Jamaica had begun logging hardwood on the mainland By 1840 the territory had become a colony Guatemala claimed that it had inherited the territory from Spain but nevertheless signed a treaty with Britain in 1859 recognizing British sovereignty and agreeing on the border However a clause in the treaty stated that the parties had to build a road through the jungle from Guatemala to the Caribbean coast The road had never happened and on that basis Guatemala claimed that the 1859 treaty was invalid The government even inserted a clause into the 1945 constitution stating that British Honduras was in fact part of Guatemala much as the Argentinians had with the Falklands In the 1960s as other British colonies in the Caribbean moved toward independence Guatemala turned up the heat In 1963 it massed troops along the border and Britain sent forces to repel any invasion British troops had been there ever since In 1972 Guatemala had again assembled troops along the border and this time Britain sent the Ark Royal and several thousand men In 1975 after yet another threat we installed a suadron of RAF Harriers Finally in 1980 Guatemala agreed to recognize Belize but only if the famous road was built There were riots in Belize people were killed The treaty wasn t ratified and Guatemala went back to refusing to recognize its neighbor Britain had kept a small garrison in Belize ever since as a permanent deterrent against incursionsMost small machine guns work on the blowback principle where the working parts come forward to initiate a round and the gases then push back the working parts which stay to the rear unless you pull the trigger again The Heckler Kochs are reliable and have an excellent rate of fire And they re British of all things Heckler and Koch being part of British Aerospace Another good feature of the MP5 is its three round burst capability so every time you sueeze the trigger it just fires three rounds Release the trigger sueeze it again it ll just fire three rounds It s the first three to five rounds that are most effective on any automatic weapon

    REVIEW Immediate Action Andy McNab  1 FREE READ DOWNLOAD Ó TRAMZ.CO  Andy McNab This was an interesting autobiography It was curious that he paints vivid pictures of scenes in jungles or other far off places of him being super brave and getting the job done etc while he glosses over relationships with anyone outside of the regiment He was certainly very focused on the regiment and keeping himself happy After joining the army proper he barely mentions his parents His many wives are just 2D bits of fluff to entertain
