Midnight in some burning town

WAS £7.99 £3.99

Product description

Man for man, the British Special Forces are regarded as the best in the world. Since the mid-nineties the British government has deployed them across the globe from Bosnia to Sierra Leone and from South America to the Middle East. They have never been busier than they are now, waging counter-insurgency operations on the front lines of the 'Global War on Terror'. Christian Jennings is an experienced journalist who has reported on conflicts and humanitarian crises from Africa to the Balkans. MIDNIGHT IN SOME BURNING TOWN follows a number of Special Forces teams from the interventions in Serbia, Kosovo and Macedonia to the invasion of Afghanistan, the overthrow of the Taliban and the hunt for Osama bin Laden. It culminates in the largest Special Forces operation yet seen: the penetration of Iraq.
