Publisher Description

On April 29, 1980, British police assured Iran that their embassy was secure. The very next day, terrorists stormed the embassy and took 26 hostages. With the Iranian government willing to let the hostages become martyrs, and the British government only willing to talk if the terrorists surrendered, 26 lives hung in the balance.

What followed was six days of tension and terror. It was finally ended when the SAS launched a daring rescue mission, broadcast live on television. Millions held their breath, waiting to see the outcome of Operation Nimrod.

Andy D66 ,

SAS at its best

Well paced and informative. With appendices, they also put to rest some of the urban legends that have grown up around the Princes Gate siege. Having become a fan of Russells work with A Damn Close Run Thing, I recommend this to any amateur historian interested in hearing one of the British military's finest hours
