Battlefield 3 Novel Plans

EA announces plans for a Battlefield 3 novel, which will be written by former S.A.S. operative Andy McNab. Word is: "The book tells the back-story of RU Special Forces operator Dima, one of the hero soldiers featured in the Battlefield 3 single-player campaign narrative. Having first-hand experience of the drama and trauma of real war, McNab and co-author Grimsdale bring an authentic voice and heart-wrenching perspective to the story." There's an interview with Andy McNab about this on Eurogamer.net. The novel is scheduled for release on Oct. 25, 2011 to coincide with the availability of the military shooter sequel.

I remember Andy McNab doing various bits of news commentary on stuff like Larry King live back in the months after 9/11.

He always appeared heavily concealed behind a shadowy silhouette and distorted voice to protect his "real identity" (Andy McNab isn't his real name either)

Not to sound too Arm-Chair-General here but from my understanding, these cash-in novelists who served in these cloak and dagger black ops units are generally looked down on by their former colleagues.

People like Eric L. Haney (Inside Delta Force) and probably better known for his co-producer role for that mediocre CBS TV show "The Unit" are shit-listed from actual veteran reunions...

But what the hell does he care, since he made a small fortune exposing the exploits and experiences that are part of his line of work.

Anyways, Iím sure it will be a pretty good read for anyone who likes these boots on the ground stories, whether it is fact or fiction.
