Publisher's Summary

In the summer of 1941, at the height of the war in the Western Desert, a bored and eccentric young officer, David Stirling, came up with a plan that was imaginative, radical and entirely against the rules: a small undercover unit that would wreak havoc behind enemy lines.

Despite intense opposition, Winston Churchill personally gave Stirling permission to recruit the most ruthless soldiers he could find. So began the most celebrated and mysterious military organisation in the world: the SAS.

The history of the SAS is an exhilarating tale of fearlessness and heroism, recklessness and tragedy; of extraordinary men willing to take monumental risks. It is a story of the meaning of courage.

    Story
    "McIntyre narration and great narrator."

    I am fascinated by The men who made a difference and won the War.
    And these Roque heroes are real characters.
    I have read all of Ben McIntyre's books.
    This one is unique!

    Story
    "SAS - who dares reads!"

    Astonishing! War as I have never heard it. I think Churchill's words of 'Never was so much owed by so many to so few' be equally applied to the work of the SAS.

    Story
    "great book"

    great read/listen, well written and read by the narrator. The book chronicles the birth, use, operation and legacy of the SAS during World war two.

    there are three more books that come to mind similar to this, but by no means the same. Damian Lewis Nazi hunters which is an account in great detail of op luton and the hunt for war criminals

    The phantom Mayor, solely about David Sterling and how the SAS came about and there operations.

    I think the third is also a Damian Lewis book, Churchill secret warriors I believe, about anders lassen the SBS solider awarded the VC
