Finished another audiobook last night. This time it was Six Bravo Zero by Damien Lewis (no not the actor). It's a corking Boy's Own true story of a 60 man special forces squadron being hunted by 100,000 Iraqi soldiers during the second Iraq war. Well worth a listen. Was so impressed I've started another one of his now, Churchill's Secret Warriors.  :thumbsup:

Part way through Churchill's Secret Warriors and so far it's been a corking recounting of events. So far it's covered Operation Postmaster and the Maid Honour force, the formation of the Small Scale Raiding Force prior to the disaster of Operation Aquatint and the loss of its commanding officer, Major Gus March-Phillips.

Overall it's well worth a listen.  :thumbsup:
