    This looks good, even if the negotiator comes off as heavily conflicted and wearied. Hopefully they do this operation justice by portraying the 22nd SAS as professionals and not hot-shot cowboys, a la Hollywood.

    I've got an old book somewhere that has a section on the raid that breaks down of the assault by time, floor of the embassy, and room with identification of the weapons used.

    I need to find mine. There's at least two books I know of dedicated to just that operation.

    The comments I've heard of Margaret Thatcher's 'debrief' of the op are hilarious. That woman was solid.

    That was a solid woman indeed. Not being a Brit, I liked her and remember vividly the incident. I call these events 'incidents' because we all know who will be shot, wounded or taken prisoner from the first minute on. Of course we will always need those men that can turn themselves into "hunting mode".
