The 5-year, worldwide agreement with McNab allows Kuju to create and publish mobile products incorporating the name of Andy McNab. McNab will provide the company's game designers with his wealth of knowledge of covert operations.

Kevin Holloway, Managing Director, Kuju Wireless Publishing commented, 'We are delighted to have signed this agreement with such a prominent author and one of the UK's most highly decorated soldiers. We'll be announcing more details on the games themselves in the coming months.'

Andy McNab said, 'I'm very excited to be working with Kuju. We are going to make some great games together.'

Andy McNab joined the SAS in 1984 and was involved in covert and overt special operations worldwide. During the Gulf War he commanded Bravo Two Zero, a patrol that, in the words of his commanding officer 'will remain in regimental history forever'. Awarded both the Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM) and Military Medal (MM) during his military career, McNab was the British Army's most highly decorated serving soldier when he left the SAS. His books include Bravo Two Zero and Immediate Action, both based on his own life and experiences and a number of best-selling novels including, most recently, Deep Black and Boy Soldier. He is also a regular newspaper columnist and lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK.
