Availability: Ready to download

The four-man team comprising elite British special forces regiment 22 SAS wake up to learn that they are being summoned that lunchtime to a top secret meeting with their commanding officer. As they approach the lecture theatre, a distinct increase in security forewarns them of the gravity of their impending liaison. After the doors are locked and the silence inhaled, they The four-man team comprising elite British special forces regiment 22 SAS wake up to learn that they are being summoned that lunchtime to a top secret meeting with their commanding officer. As they approach the lecture theatre, a distinct increase in security forewarns them of the gravity of their impending liaison. After the doors are locked and the silence inhaled, they are given the news that, after a long consideration on the parts of various western governments, they have been selected for a mission so important, it would not be superfluous to call it "once in a lifetime". Their objective: to assassinate Saddam Hussein, president of Iraq. Their timeframe: less than one week. As always in the SAS, success is demanded as standard. However, the consequences of failure in "Operation Long Shadow" range somewhere between their own barbarous torture and all-out nuclear war! Can they pull it off? And if so, at what cost? Author Stuart Mills takes the reader along for every step of their remarkable journey; from the beer-banter of their down-time bonding, to the arduous-in-the-extreme training exercises and, eventually, to their standing in the "shadow of the mosque" itself...
