Crossfire advert

When living in the UK you might come across this cool advert. It’s appearing in magazines and on posters.

It’s a bit small on this picture but it says that if you text MCNAB to 80880 (I’m afraid UK only) you’ll receive Crossfires first chapter. You have a choice of text or audio.

The audio version is introduced by McNab, the narration in “Spoken From The Front” style.

 

Then it also came to my attention (thanx Simon) that Tesco has an awesome promotion stunt: If people purchase Crossfire from Tesco they’ll receive a free CD with the Iraq Ambush audio story, as well as the chance to enter a VERY cool competition:

McNab: “I have teamed up with Tesco to bring you the best competition this side of Basra. You could win signed copy of all of my books, plus the chance for you and a friend to win a SAS-themed experience which includes training from ex-army/Special Forces instructors in survival skills, camouflage, unarmed combat and live weapons handling.”

As far as I know this offer applies only in store, I haven’t found it online. Correct me if I’m wrong. My information doesn’t go as far as knowing what you have to do to win, but it seems an awesome experience. We’d love to hear from the winner in time. If there’s a consolation prize to just stand on the sideline and watch I’d probably join the competition, I’ve just seen Bob Spour’s video SAS Fight Secrets (register or log in to see that video, to confirm you’re over 18. I wonder why) and after seeing that I can fairly say I’m not really interested in the actual training with ex-SF instructors! 😉
