SAS: Britain’s Elite Special Forces in Their Own Words is the story of the world’s most famous special forces regiment, written by the troopers and officers who really know it. From the dust of the wartime desert and raids on Luftwaffe aircraft to sniping al-Qaeda in the far mountains of Afghanistan, SAS takes the reader on a fast-paced history of the regiment and clears some of the smoke away from their mysterious operations.
