Rezension bezieht sich auf: Immediate Action (Taschenbuch)
Andy McNab lets you see the human side of the SAS. As you read along, you realize these men are not supermen or Rambos, but rather ordinary people who have been trained to a superior level. Even experienced SAS men seem to practice routines over and over again. One thing that they do have, that many don't, is physical and mental endurance. I really liked this book. It was a great read. It was slightly disappointing that some operations ended with no real results, but then, this is not fiction. What you do get a good understanding of, is how well the SAS prepares for any operation they have to perform. The publisher claims that the British government tried to stop publication of this book. I cannot understand why - no SAS operation secrets are exposed. If you're looking for cover to cover action, go rent Rambo. If you want to get some insight into how the SAS operates, you'll enjoy this book. If I had to choose between this book and Bravo Two Zero (one of McNab's other books), Bravo Two Zero wins, but I read both, and I am happy I did.
