In 1980, terrorists seized the Iranian embassy in London, taking everyone inside captive. When one of the hostages was murdered, the Special Air Services of the British Army received their orders: “Go! Go! Go!” Seventeen minutes later, five of the six terrorists lay dead, and the last captured. The remaining hostages survived, and no Special Forces man died. This mission catapulted the SAS overnight to worldwide fame. Written with the active involvement of the men who participated, this fascinating work features a host of revelations that will surprise even the most dedicated SAS enthusiast, and interest everyone concerned with terrorism in our dangerous age.
