About the Author

ANDY MCNAB joined the infantry as a boy soldier. In 1984 he was 'badged' as a member of 22 SAS Regiment and was involved in both covert and overt special operations worldwide. During the Gulf War he commanded Bravo Two Zero, a patrol that, in the words of his commanding officer, 'will remain in regimental history for ever'. Awarded both the Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM) and Military Medal (MM) during his military career, McNab was the British Army's most highly decorated serving soldier when he finally left the SAS in February 1993. He wrote about his experiences in three books: the phenomenal bestseller Bravo Two Zero, Immediate Action and Seven Troop.

He is the author of the bestselling Nick Stone thrillers. Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK. He is a patron of the Help for Heroes campaign.

This is a great book Andy Mcnab did a great job taking the campaign mode of Battlefield (The game) and making it into a book. The book includes alot of scenes from the video game but also takes you deep inside the background story of it, just going to warn you the book does include alot of mature language and a little too much to be honest. But other then that its a good read but i recommend also playing the video game campaign or at least watch some of it before/after reading this book.

Over all rating (1-5)
Writing- 5
Story- 4
Plot - 4

...you should read this. Andy McNab worked with DICE on the video game and this story carries the same realism, grit, and authenticity. McNab was in the SAS and certainly knows what he is talking about. The story concerns Blackburn (whom you play in the game) and Dima, fleshing out their relationship in a way that the game didn't cover.

If you had a hard time caring about the campaign in battlefield 3, I don't think this will change your mind. But if you ate it up as I did, you will enjoy the hell out of this novel. I also recommend listening to the soundtrack ( Battlefield 3 ) at the same time. Enjoy it!

Side Note: Who was the brainiac who decided to start making paperback books a half inch taller all of a sudden? They don't fit well on my shelf.

I chose this rating because this book needs to be read if anyone wants to understand what returning soldiers have to face when there's no war to fight anymore, or in ex-Spetsnaz GRU soldier Dima's case, when your country is no more. He's McNab's usual protagonist, an ex-special forces soldier turned mercenary like Nick Stone with a cynical worldview and a flair for dropping f-bombs left and right in graphically violent situations. The plot mostly follows Battlefield 3, except for a few scenes being adjusted for reader's sake from the game. Dima's an interesting character I think, not unlike Nick Stone in mood, character backstorie's absent from the video game are a fascinating plus, and the game's villain's lifestory is explored more than in the game, which is interesting and cool. The ending was good but some questions remained unanswered. Like Solomon's (the baddy's) motivation for nuking New York and Paris, and the ultimate fate of Sgt. Blackburn, the secondary protagonist (spoiler alert)!. I'll I heard was revenge about Solomon's beef with the West. But for what reason?! I suppose it's kinda alright in a way, for motives don't usually remain unknown for the villain's in literature, and this is a unique approach to that element. The action was pulse-racing, brutally realistic, the pace was average and fast in different parts of the story but took a long while in explaining the endgame, which I didn't mind though. Existentialist themes and descriptions are thoughout in dreary surroundings from Dima's point of view and all the other characters. I wish (spoiler alert!) they hadn't killed him off in Battlefield 4.Read more ›

This book is okay. If you liked the campaign, you'll like this book. I thought it was dragged on, but it's whatever.
