Clarky,

There is a book by "Chris Ryan" called "The one that got away". Its the same story as Bravo Two Zero but from his view point.(He was the 1 member of the 8 that escaped and it details his story of how he survived alone) There appears to be a bit of tension between him and Andy Mcnab about the events so its quite interesting to get 2 different perspectives on the same events.

And then there is....

Soldier Five: The Real Truth About The Bravo Two Zero Mission by Mike Coburn. A third member of the team.

I've not read this one but it did cause a lot of controversy as the British government tried very hard to get it banned from publication.

Got part way though The Wonder Stuff Diaries 86-89 on holiday (before snorkeling, lounging and beach cocktails rudely interrupted most days) a band I've been following since I had more hair and less belly :lol:

I’m approaching Minas Tirith on a re-read of LOTR. It’s been about 30 years since I read it. Golden prose.

Going to have another crack at the Wheel of Time on holiday. I got onto book 5 once and gave up.
