Damien Lewis has spent twenty years reporting from conflict zones around the world. Zero Six Bravo—a Sunday Times number one bestseller—tells the story of sixty special forces against 100,000. They were branded as cowards and accused of desertion. But nothing could be further from the truth. Ten years on, the story of these sixty men can finally be told.

In March 2003, M Squadron—an SBS unit with SAS embeds—was sent one thousand kilometers behind enemy lines on a true mission impossible: to take the surrender of the 100,000-strong Iraqi Army Fifth Corps. From the very start, this risky undertaking earned the nickname “Operation No Return.” Caught in a ferocious ambush by Saddam Hussein’s fedayeen, plus the awesome firepower of the Fifth Corps’ heavy armor, and with eight of their vehicles bogged in Iraqi swamps, M Squadron launched a desperate bid to escape, inflicting massive damage on their enemies. Running low on fuel and ammunition, outnumbered, and outgunned, the elite operators destroyed sensitive information and prepared for death or capture as the Iraqis closed their deadly trap.

Zero Six Bravo contains previously unpublished information detailing the essential involvement of American troops in this astonishing military feat, and recounts in vivid and compelling detail the most desperate battle fought by British and allied Special Forces trapped behind enemy lines since World War II.

    Metro

  • “Journalist Lewis highlights the soldier’s point of view in a tale from the front lines in Iraq…Suspenseful and well written.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Sent against overwhelming odds by bad intelligence and wishful thinking, the sixty men of British Special Forces' M Squadron found themselves surrounded by Iraq's 5th Corps, 100,000 of Saddam's finest, plus thousands of fanatical Fedayeen militia. Damien Lewis' true story of the courage and valor of the fierce warriors who guard our civilization is mesmerizing. Zero Six Bravo is an absolute must read.”
