A member of the assault team was caught up on a rope and badly burnt. One of the hostages who was standing too close to an initial explosion was thrown to the floor by the force and flying debris. The SAS trooper that got to him first was convinced he was already dead. Despite all Regiments' precautions, the terrorist still had time to open fire on the hostages they had trapped in one of the rooms. Forty-seven men took part in the assault, and this is their story. At first it didn't all go as smoothly as they hoped.

Rusty Firmin was one of the SAS soldiers involved in the rescue operation but he is not the only SAS witness who has talked freely. In spite of the occasional lapse into red top cliché, the prose is uncluttered and straightforward. The natural arc of the story is well served by switching between those outside and those inside. In the final chapter the action comes helter-skelter and has to be told through parallel narratives because so much happened at the same time during the 11-minute assault.
In 1980, terrorists seized the Iranian embassy in London, taking everyone inside captive. When one of the hostages was murdered, the Special Air Services of the British Army received their orders: Go! Go! Go!” Seventeen minutes later, five of the six terrorists lay dead, and the last captured. The remaining hostages survived, and no Special Forces man died. This mission catapulted the SAS overnight to worldwide fame. Written with the active involvement of the men who participated, this fascinating work features a host of revelations that will surprise even the most dedicated SAS enthusiast, and interest everyone concerned with terrorism in our dangerous age.
