Rated 0

Biography: general, Prose: non-fiction

The first inside account of the Fleet Air Arm by one of Britain's real-life TOP GUNS - Lieutenant-Commander Nick Richardson

On 16th April 1994, Nick Richardson was shot down over the beseiged Bosnian Muslim town of Gorazde, his plane hit by a surface-to-air missile. NO ESCAPE ZONE is the story of Richardson's journey to the Bosnian theatre of war and his descent into the hell of the war-torn Balkans. It recounts in graphic detail the rigorous training as his aircraft carrier HMS Ark Royal steamed full tilt to the Adriatic, his missions over Bosnia and the dramatic shootdown itself. But that was merely the beginning. Picked up by Muslim forces, he rapidly learnt that nothing was what it seemed in the former Yugoslavia. When the Serbs stormed Gorazde, Richardson - now teamed with a crack SAS unit - found the Muslims turning against them. A dangerous escape became their only option, because capture meant almost certain death. An action-packed narrative in the bestselling tradition of Sabre Squadron and TORNADO DOWN, Nick Richardson's first-hand account of his breakout from the besieged town is one of the most gripping, untold escape stories of the modern era.
