||Synopsis: This is the true story of the most highly decorated British patrol since the Boer war: an eight man SAS team inserted behind Iraqi lines during the Gulf War in January 1991. Their mission was to take out the scud missiles which Saddam Hussein was using to terrorize his enemies, as well as to sever strategic communication lines between Baghdad and North West Iraq. This top secret mission was called "Bravo Two Zero" and it was commanded by Sergeant Andy McNab. Of the eight who went out, only five returned. Dropped into "scud alley" carrying 210-pound packs, McNab and his men soon found themselves surrounded by Saddam's army. Their radios didn't work; the weather was brutally cold. And they had been spotted. Written by Joanathan Amiran <[email protected]>

It took the BBC to tell this gripping story honestly and with
authenticity. And what a story. As the Gulf War got underway in early
1991 an eight-man SAS patrol was dropped behind Iraqi lines. Its
mission: destroy mobile Scud missile launchers and the lines that
carried instructions from their crews.
History shows how it all went wrong. Their communications equipment
failed. The weather closed in. They were discovered and fought a series
of running battles with overwhelming Iraqi forces. Finally half the
patrol was captured and endured weeks of torture and interrogation at
the hands of the Iraqi secret police in Baghdad.
The story of Bravo Two Zero - the patrol's call sign and the title of
this terrific British television movie - puts most Hollywood movies to
shame. It is a story of courage, resilience, guile, resourcefulness and
black humour. It also offers up a fascinating insight into the workings
of Britain's special forces and the reality of the Gulf War.
There are those who consider the film one-sided, and it is. What war
film isn't? How much objectivity goes into the average war film? The
answer: precious little. Bravo Two Zero is based on the book by Andy
McNab, the SAS sergeant who led the patrol. Consequently it tells the
tale from his point of view.
But McNab doesn't come out of this a whiter-than-white superhero. He
makes mistakes. He is human, fallible and, locked in a Baghdad prison,
frightened out of his wits. For Sean Bean, it was the type of gritty,
realistic and believable role that most actors would kill for. Throw in
the authenticity of the soldiers' kit, jargon and reactions under fire
- they were trained by real soldiers while McNab himself was the film's
on-set consultant - and Bravo Two Zero leaps to the top spot in the
(albeit limited) annals of Gulf War movies.
And the Iraqis? They are depicted as McNab saw them: peasant farmers,
ill-equipped and poorly trained conscripts, goat herders, grieving
parents and, occasionally, gentleman officers.
There is no agenda to Bravo Two Zero. Instead it seeks to present a
soldier's story. And while there is another side to the story - patrol
survivor Chris Ryan, who was separated from his comrades and fought his
way across Iraq to the Syrian border, and freedom, also wrote an
account - this is simply one man's version of events. McNab presents it
as he saw it: a botched mission, eight desperate men, a series of
bloody firefights and skirmishes, capture and torture and, finally,
If the Iraqis come across as thuggish, brutal, dim and sadistic, then
history has shown that Saddam Hussein's regime was built on such
people. That was McNab's experience, and Bravo Two Zero puts it on
What the film does not seek to do is present McNab and his patrol as
trigger-happy killing machines. When they are spotted by an Iraqi child
they spare his life rather than kill him to ensure his silence. As
McNab says, it's a matter of common sense: kill a child and they will
eventually face the wrath of the Iraqi people if they are caught. And,
he adds: "We're not into that anyway".
Compromised by an elderly shepherd, they talk to him, make friends and
let him live. On the outskirts of Baghdad the patrol hijacks a taxi.
They spare the occupants. Consider this: would the average Saddam
Hussein loyalist have done the same to an elderly Yank or Brit?
Bravo Two Zero is a superb document of a military debacle. It shows how
professional soldiers, caught in a disaster, try to fight their way
out. As soldiers, that's their job. And they do it exceptionally well.
As the motto goes: Who Dares Wins. McNab and his men dared. Bravo Two
Zero is a magnificent tribute to them.
