Publishers Description: Man for man, the British Special Forces are regarded as the best in the world. Their reputation ensures they are the first to be deployed to trouble-spots and they have never been busier than in the last few years. Christian Jennings is an experienced journalist who has covered SAS operations all over the world. MIDNIGHT IN SOME BURNING TOWN follows a number of Special Forces teams from the intervention in the Balkans (Serbia, Kosovo, Macedonia) to the invasion of Afghanistan, the overthrow of the Taliban and the hunt for bin Laden and his terrorists. It culminates in the largest Special Forces operation yet seen: the penetration of Iraq months before the main Coalition forces invaded in March 2003.
