Andy McNab will grace the main stage at the Harmony Gardens, Melrose festival, though whether or not Scottish fans will get a good look at his face remains to be seen:

The programme says that the 52-year-old will be talking about his new novel, his 14th work of fiction, but, like the man himself, it is shrouded in mystery.

“McNab is using the festival to launch his novel and that’s a much as we know,” said a festival spokeswoman. “We’ve had no indication if the writer wants to hide his identity by appearing behind a screen, which all adds to the intrigue.”

In a fantastic recent article for the Financial Times, Andy McNab talks about his personal experiences embedded with the Afghan National Army:

I’m lying in the dust using a mud wall as cover and overlooking a wide valley in Helmand province, Afghanistan. In front of me, the Afghan National Army is returning fire as the Taliban try to halt their advance south: it is a massive demonstration of firepower. The incoming attack stops immediately, meaning the Taliban fighters are either dead or running for cover. I am taking part in Operation Now Roz (from “nowruz”, meaning “new year” in Dari) the largest, most dangerous and most complex operation the nascent Afghan National Army (ANA) has ever conducted.
