A fire started which went on to burn out most of the Embassy. On 5 May 1980, the world held its breath as an SAS assault team attacked the Iranian Embassy. 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.

The SAS. by Rusty Firmin and Will Pearson. Inspiration for the major motion picture 6 Day s, starring Jamie Bell as Rusty Firmin Go Go Go tells the action-packed story of the 1980 Iranian Embassy siege.

When the SAS freed 19 hostages from the London Iranian embassy before watching cameras, the regiment’s fame . Though the story is familiar, Rusty.

When the SAS freed 19 hostages from the London Iranian embassy before watching cameras, the regiment’s fame was sealed forever. April 15 2010, 9:27pm, The Sunday Times. Tear gas was fired into the Iranian Embassy before the SAS stormed the rooms (Getty Images). The struggle to defeat international terrorism is a muddled, inconclusive business, which seldom yields wholly satisfactory outcomes. But on two notable occasions the forces of light have achieved successes that caught the imagination of the world.

Rusty Firmin was one of the SAS soldiers involved in the rescue operation but he is not the only SAS witness who has . Without turning a platinum hair, Mrs Thatcher moved. By Rusty Rusty Firmin and Will Pearson with Gillian Stern. Weidenfeld & Nicolson, £1. 9.

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.

A gripping story. As avid followers of international events, my husband and I remember this siege well as the coverage was very high in the US, along with the US hostage crisis. It was heartwarming to read how the hostages helped one another through the horror, as well as to read the painstaking planning for the rescue.

I enjoyed this book a lot. It was fast-paced and kept the action moving. It told the story from many perspectives. The only thing I wish was that the photos that showed up in the middle of the kindle version didn’t ruin some of the ending. It gave away a bit about events towards the end. Other than that, it was a great book and I would recommend it.

If brief, this is a concise and detailed account by those who participated in this incredible rescue event. The explanation/description of how the SAS coordinated the embassy rescue answered the questions pondered for over three decades.

First person account and great detail made this book an excellent read. I truly hope the movie does the book justice!!!!

Really happy to have been able to buy and read such a great book, highly recommend this to anyone interested nthe birth of Counter Terrorisim in the modern world.

A very good recounting of the 1980 hostage situation that occurred at the Iranian Embassy in London.

My main disappointment with the book is that I had expected it to have a different focus, given that one of the authors was an SAS member who participated in the rescue of the hostages. However, instead of being an SAS memoir involving the siege at Princes Gate, Go! Go! Go! recounts the entire hostage situation from beginning to end. While the book offers great detail regarding what was going on inside the embassy, and some detail regarding the negotiations, I felt the book could have offered more behind-the-scenes details on what the SAS was doing during the lead up to the rescue.

Aside from that, Go! Go! Go! does offer one of the more (if not most) detailed accounts I have read regarding the actual storming of the embassy by the SAS. This part of the book was particularly good, presenting the rapid fire, intertwining actions of the SAS teams by continually shifting focus between the different teams.

From the standpoint of someone who is primarily looking for an SAS book, I would only rate this three stars. But for what it is, a detailed start-to-finish recounting of the siege at Princes Gate, the book is worthy of at least the four stars I have rated it.
