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
    "Good fun & informative"

    It's a lovely, easy listen. Written and narrated well. Given the subject matter it was always going to be a 'Boys Own' adventure but it's nicely down and very interesting. Also try Agent ZigZag by the same author!

    Story
    "SAS Rogue Heros"

    A brilliantly well illustrated book. Read in such a way it becomes difficult to switch off. A wonderful insight into the start of the SAS with a hint of dry humour. Brilliant.

    Story
    "interesting read"

    I like the fact that it didn't seek to glorify the SAS and told the story in a fairly neutral way. Also it reflected the horrors of wars and atrocities on all sides quite well.
    overall a good read, I'm not a fan of military history but I got through it. if you like this kind of stuff it'd a definite for you.

    "Excellent"

    Really well narrated and informative history. Well researched and balanced in its presentation.Avoids the obvious cliché and glamorous view that the subject could attract

    Story
    "An Amazing History of the SAS"

    I was recommended this as an audio book and I cannot thank the person enough.

    Ben Macintyre reads this book wonderfully and I was enthralled throughout.

    He tells the history of the SAS and having done thorough research brings alive those soldiers that fought and died on our behalf.

    He does not spare the brutality of war which makes their heroism more tangible.

    Macintyre has educated me, deepened my respect for our armed forces and painted a picture of the horrors of war.

    I cannot recommend this audio book highly enough.
