First in - the official motto of one of the British Army's smallest and most secretive units, 16 Air Assault Brigade's Pathfinder Platoon. Unofficially, they are the bastard son of the SAS. And like their counterparts in Hereford, the job of the Pathfinders is to operate unseen and undetected deep behind enemy lines. When British forces deployed to Iraq in 2003, Captain David Blakeley was given command of a reconnaissance mission of such critical importance that it could change the course of the war. Nine men, operating alone and unsupported, fifty miles ahead of a US Recon Marine advance. And heading straight into a hornets nest, teeming with thousands of heavily-armed enemy forces. This is the first account of that extraordinary mission. It's the story of nine men, abandoned by coalition command, left with no option but to fight their way out of the enemy's backyard.
