The SAS are the most famous Special Forces group in the World and are unquestionably the most skillful and successful Special Forces unit.

Formed at the outset of WW2 due to the need for small, highly trained units to go in behind enemy lines, the SAS' first successful mission was in 1941. Originally not supported by the military hierarchy, because of their success the unit grew in size and played a vital role in WW2 and in subsequent campaigns.

The SAS have seen action all over the world with numerous campaigns in Europe, Malaya, Africa, the Falklands and more recently Afghanistan and Iraq.

This title covers the formation of the SAS and reveals the key men behind the unit. Also covered are some of the SAS most famous missions with analysis detailing what happened and why. Stories from surviving veterans reveal what it is like to fight for the World's most feared unit.
