Andy McNab's breezy, colloquial account of his horrendous experience as a Special Forces infiltrator during the Gulf War seems a little strained on the page but comes off especially well in this recording. It's like hearing the man himself tell you all about it. For Christian Rodska, it means hours of reading in character, which he keeps perfectly consistent throughout. When other characters are briefly heard, they're also masterful, particularly with respect to accents. This is a book that can be enjoyed as high adventure or pondered as a window into the psychology of men who go willingly to war. J.N.
