Wow, hot news!!! In his latest letter Andy tells us:

“In September I’m going back to non-fiction and a sort of sequel to Bravo Two Zero and Immediate Action. It’s going to be called Seven Troop and it’s about the people I was first in the SAS with – what they were doing when they went in and what happened to them when they got out. There’s a load of stuff in it that I wasn’t allowed to put in the last two non-fictions and it’s going to be explosive stuff – I’m really looking forward to seeing the effect it has when it comes out… It also feels really relevant, even though I’m looking back nearly 15 years, because of the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder stuff that’s an even bigger deal today.”

The official synopsis from Transworld, Andy’s publisher: “Seven Troop is Andy McNab’s account of the time he served in the company of a remarkable group of men – from the day, freshly badged, he joined them in the Malayan jungle, to the day, ten years later, that he handed in his sand-coloured beret and started a new life.” 

However, Greymansland was told that besides the above, Seven Troop will cover just about everything in Andy’s life from being badged in 1983 until present times. Awesome! Really looking forward to this book!

The other news is that McNab is developing and co-producing a BBC1 drama series based on the army being in Afghanistan called ‘Warrior Nation’.
Andy says:

“We’re going to show for the first time what it’s really like to be out there on a tour. It’s at the really early stages at the moment – getting the treatments together, working on the script and with any luck we’ll start filming towards the end of this year. There will be about six months of filming and then we can get it out on screen next year. I’m really excited about this project.”

For the McNab fan 2008 seems to become a fabulous year! Enjoy all!
