Description

From its origins during World War II to its modern role as the world's premier anti-terrorist unit, Britain's Special Air Service has been home to the most highly trained and deadly soldiers ever to do battle. This encyclopedia aims to penetrate the legend to provide a reference to every aspect of the history of the British Army's elite fighting force, and that of its brothers-in-arms in the Australian, New Zealand and Rhodesian SAS. This easily accessible A-Z offers over 1000 entries, each cross-referenced, covering operations, personnel, specialized weaponry and equipment. Not only useful as a historical record of the world's most famous special force, this book also aims to stand as a tribute to all members of the SAS, past and present, for their outstanding bravery while remaining true to an ideology that forms the backbone of the Regiment - Who Dares Wins.show more
