This edition, available exclusively at Waterstones, contains excerpts from the journal of war original SAS, including a memo written by David Sterling about the creation of the SAS regiment. It also includes reports of a few first SAS missions.
The first ever authorized history of the SAS, commemorating the 75th anniversary of the regiment in summer 1941, at the height of the war in the Western desert, a young officer if boredom and eccentric, David Stirling, came with a plan imaginative, radical and completely against the rules: a small undercover unit that could wreak havoc behind enemy lines. Despite intense opposition, Winston Churchill personally given permission to Stirling to recruit soldiers toughest, brightest and most ruthless as he could find.
Thus began the most famous and mysterious military organization in the world: the SAS. History of the SAS is an exciting story of fearlessness and heroism, recklessness and tragedy; extraordinary men who were willing to take monumental risks.
It's a story of the meaning of courage. .
