Shouldn't that read 'Bore War"

The Official Cult of Andy Mcnab & Co inc. TM LTD. bearer share registered company Panama...or something like that..

Continues to enthral adolescent boys and village idiots.

Nobody else is interested though.

Bore off. To be honest, I really don't give a sh!t about 'Andy McNab'.

Since leaving the military he has become a hugely successful thriller writter
Boll0cks; his wife pretty much writes them.
I heard his ghost writer was Damien Lewis :?

Are McNabs claims in B20 not true, are they fiction as some documentary accused them of being?

Are Chris Ryans claims similarly false (if McNabs are). Were they at one time colleagues?

If it is all a load of tosh, why do the networks carry on useing him as an authority?

I didn't realize THEY had vets...

I wouldn't say that their claims are false... severely sexed up by the publishers especially 'Ryan's' book. For a more balanced view give Soldier Five by Mike Coburn a go.

Same reason why they use that useless fat ex Nav John Nichol.

You've really no idea have you sven?

To be fair his RSM said a lot of it was 'embellished'. Hardly a resounding endorsement.

The networks use him because he's the '(in)famous' Andy McNab. He''s milking it which is fair enough but it's not going to get a good reception amongst those who can see beyond the hype.

Both these writers were found by their peers to have written badly about others in the patrol, particulary Vince. They caused much upset for the families concerned, a pox on them both.
