This is the story of Britains Special Air Service (SAS), the worlds premier elite fighting force. They are the most highly trained & deadly soldiers ever to do battle, with a reputation for ruthless efficiency. Although this book concentrates on the modern era of the Falklands, Gulf War, & the fight against terrorism, it also looks back at the campaigns of World War II. Genuine photos of the clandestine SAS are extremely rare; this book forms a unique collection of SAS pictures, most taken by members of the regiment & never before published. Includes photos of Prince Charles & Princess Diana being trained for a hostage situation.
