Tornado Down by John Nichol
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


RAF Flight Lieutenants John Peters and John Nichol were shot down over enemy territory on their first airborne mission of the Gulf War.Their capture in the desert, half a mile from their blazing Tornado bomber, began a nightmare seven-week ordeal of torture and interrogation that brought both men close to death. The battered faces of the two British airmen which appeared on the world's television screens in January 1991 are lasting images of the suffering and brutality of war. In Tornado Down, John Peters and John Nichol tell the incredible story of their part in the war against Saddam Hussein's regime. It is a brave and shocking and totally honest story- a story about war and its effects on the hearts and minds of men.
