"Drawing on the stories of the soldiers who were there, this dramatic history of the SAS is full of bravado. "

There is nothing significantly new in this book, but Ryan writes with the authority of a man familiar with every nuance of the regiment’s tactics, training, weapons and equipment. His book is full of tales of derring-do, many of them true, about men who have done remarkable things on and off battlefields. Millions love reading such yarns, partly because we know ourselves incapable of matching their achievements.
