New book, 214 pages. In May 2000 the British government had sent a military and naval task force to the troubled west African state of Sierra Leone to bolster the United Nations operation that was attempting to restore peace and stability following a savage and brital civil war. It was a challenging and potentially risky assignment, and on 25 August 2000 the dangers were suddenly highlighted by the capture of eleven British soldiers by a notorious militia gang. The so-called 'West Side Boys' had subjected their part of the county to a long reign of terror, murdering, kidnapping and mutilating anyone who stood in their way. Prime Minister Tony Blair ordered the armed forces to get the men back. D Squadron 22 SAS and A Company 1st Battalion the Parachute Regiment were rushed to west Africa. The stage was set for the biggest British military operationon the continent for a generation - and their most daring rescue mission ever.
