Summary

From master storyteller Andy McNab, this is the opening book in an adventure-filled and action-packed series telling, for the first time ever, the true stories of Special Forces missions.

It is the early 2000s and 9/11 is fresh in the world's memory. The Taliban have taken over Afghanistan, and armed militants and explosive devices are terrorising the people. And now a new threat is emerging in the country: suicide bombings, ordered by military commander of the Taliban, Mullah Dadullah.

Special Forces are sent in to stop him.

The Hunt is the thrilling story of the secret mission to catch Dadullah, one of the most dangerous men alive. Using classified sources and his unique insight into the way the SAS works, Andy McNab gives a pause-resisting account of what it took the Special Forces to find their target and what they would have to do to take him down.

An explosive story of hostage negotiations, undercovers missions and a final, epic assault on Dadullah's compound that could leave only one side alive, The Hunt is a powerful retelling of a real-life Special Forces mission.

Detailed, but rather boring.

A clear and concise delivery of details...frequently pointless ones, along with a realistic dialogue that does little story building.
As a film it would be great. As a book it droned on. An example is the repeated recitation of map coordinates. In a movie map coordinates add realism. In a book it's a pointless string of numbers. Likewise the dialogue is realistic in a film, monotonous in a book.

The general Boo-Yah arc of the story misses the overall story of Afghanistan, which was a complete and utterly pointless cock-up. Great men doing great things in a pointless venture. It reminded me of Robin Cooks "The Green Berets", Boo-Yah all the way off the edge of the cliff.

With a different presentation, it would have been much more enjoyable.
