Rise of Cobra prequel novel

Postby Red Laser » 29 Jun 2009 17:49

I got today the prequel novel Above & Beyond so there is hope yet for the film to be shown in the Isle of Man. The story involves Duke trying to find out who's playing both sides of the conflict by supplying each with the same advanced weaponry.

I will let you know what it is like after I have read Victor Two Inside Iraq which is a good book about SAS missions in Ireland,South America and Iraq during Desert Storm by ex SAS Peter "Yorky" Crossland

I guess :destro: must be the supplier of advanced weaponry.
Which is the status quo of the Lewis siblings in the novel?

I think the book I read was Tenth Man Down by Chris Ryan eddie it was set in Africa and it was a training mission that went wrong and involved diamonds it starts off with an ex SAS member camping with his son and seeing a night exercise in the Brecon hills which leads to him recounting the mission
