The gripping follow-up to the bestselling War Torn. Writing with Kym Jordan, Andy McNab has created a stunning sequel to his bestselling novel War Torn which detailed the lives of a close-knit team of soldiers fighting on the frontline in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, and those of their loved ones left behind at base in England.

Like its predecessor, Battle Lines is at once a gritty, close-to-the-action, present day thriller and an involving look at the stresses and strains which divided families and relationships suffer when separated by thousands of miles and a wealth of experience. This is real life, brought brilliantly to life, by Andy McNab, whose continued involvement with the men and women of the British Army gives this extraordinary novel its authenticity, its toughness and its heart.

About the author (2012)

As a teenage delinquent, ANDY McNAB kicked against society. As a young soldier he waged war against the IRA in the streets and fields of South Armagh. As a member of 22 SAS he was at the centre of covert operations for nine years -- on five continents. During the Gulf War he commanded Bravo Two Zero, a patrol that, in the words of his commanding officer, 'will remain in regimental history for ever'. Awarded both the Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM) and Military Medal (MM) during his military career, McNab was the British Army's most highly decorated serving soldier when he finally left the SAS. Since then Andy McNab has become one of the world's bestselling writers, drawing on his insider knowledge and experience. As well as three nonfiction bestsellers, he is the author of the bestselling Nick Stone thrillers. Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK, works in the film industry advising Hollywood on everything from covert procedure to training civilian actors to act like soldiers and he continues to be a spokesperson and fundraiser for both military and literacy charities.
