The Cold War was approaching its height. Turbulence had spread to the Middle East, and steps had to be taken which no government could endorse. Step forward the Sixteen. A hand-picked, top-secret elite British killing squad, the Sixteen’s purpose was to assassinate Communist sympathizers in the military. Their training surpassed the SAS in unarmed combat, weaponry and fear elimination. 40 years after their dissolution, Urwin breaks his silence in The Sixteen to divulge the riveting secrets of their four key missions. The Sixteen is of extreme relevance right now, touching upon Middle Eastern conflicts which remain with us to this day and urgently require positive responses. No previous account of a military group has remotely compared to the secrecy, skill and sheer professionalism of the Sixteen.

Book Description John Blake Publishing Ltd, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. As an 18-year-old, John Urwin was posted to Cyprus, where he was recruited into a top-secret unit called the Sixteen, whose task was to assassinate key figures throughout the Middle East. Now he breaks his silence to tell their story. Their training was said to have surpassed that of the SAS in unarmed combat and weaponry. His description of their four key missions is explosive and a riveting account of the turbulent 1950s in the Middle East. The Cold War was approaching its height and when there was a mission to be undertaken that no government could be seen to endorse, the Sixteen would do the job. No previous depiction of a military group, in book or movie, has remotely compared to the secrecy, skills and sheer professionalism of the Sixteen. Seller Inventory # AWC9781784182687
