The Sixteen, by John Urwin
As an 18 year old called up for National Sevice, John
Urwin thought his would be an ordinary tour of duty.
He had no idea that when he was posted to Cyprus he would be
recruited into a top-secret unit called the Sixteen,
whose taks was to assassinate key figures throughout the
He has never spoken about this elite unit in the 40 years
since they disbanded, but now he breaks his silence to
tell their full amazing story.
No government has ever officially confirmed the
existence of the Sixteen and nothing has ever been
revealed about this mysterious
group. 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 there was a very real fear that there might be a
nuclear conflict between the superpowers. When there was a
mission to be undertaken that no goverment could be seen
to endorse, the Sixteen would do the job. They underwent
unique training to ensure they had completely eliminated fear.
Long after he left the Sixteen, John Urwin continued
to use his skills in the unarmed combat courses he ran,
but nothing compared to the heart stopping action he saw
while in active service. This is an extraordinary account -
no previous depiction of a military group, in book or movie,
has remotely compared to the secrecy, skills and sheer
professionalism of the Sixteen.
