Lone Survivor film

Recommended Posts

I watched Lone survivor film yesterday, although a very good film I'd did rather remind me of the book Bravo two zero.

 

My reasons, botched operation in enemy territory, most of the squad shot, mission compromised due to a goat herder and the fact they let him/them go.

I know both operations are "true" with probably a bit of embellishment.

 

Am I the only one who thinks this?

I though that too. The film of Lone Survivor is nothing like the book although thats the case with all movies. Because of that i just read BTZ again lol. I like BTZ as its written by a Brit so its less dramatic like yanks. Shame the SAS cant talk about there Ops anymore. Task force Black is an ok book on SAS/SBS if ya like that kinda thing.

Baz thats an awesomely wriiten review.

 

Jay83, I also like BTZ and most other books of the same type, more so if they are written by British authers, I've read task force black, not a bad book.

Sniper one is a personal favorite, By Dan Mills(British army staff sergant).
