Based on Andy McNab's memoir, BRAVO TWO ZERO is the story of the eight man SAS team who, during the Gulf War, were dropped behind enemy lines with 210 packs strapped to their backs and orders to destroy Saddam's "scud alley." Unfortunately, within 24 hours, the team's radios were dead and they found themselves pursued by the Iraqui Army. Sergeant McNab, who commanded the top-secret mission, was one of the five who made it back from behind Iraqui lines, and his story is one of the most heartbreaking and thrilling of the Gulf War.
