About the Book

First published in 1993 and now available as an ebook. The bestselling story of one man’s fight against terrorism.

Extraordinary courage, steely professionalism and ruthless determination are vital for the bomb-disposal man who risks his life daily to save others. Peter Gurney MBE, GM & Bar is such a man. In this compelling account of a career on the front line of the fight against crime and international terrorism, he tells how:

• he defuzed the mortar bomb used in the attack on Downing Street
• discovered the body of his best friend after the Wimpy Bar explosion and then went on to defuze a second device
• was moved to tears by the horror of the Harrods bombing
• advised many foreign governments on anti-terrorism, and was an expert witness in the Lockerbie case.

Braver Men Walk Away is a fascinating and unique chronicle of an astonishing career, told with the typical humour and modesty of a reluctant hero.
