Description

This text traces the history of the modern Special Boat Service of the Royal Marines. It explores the raids and reconnaissance missions made by the SBS from World War II to Desert Storm. The exploits covered include their destruction of obstacles on the beaches to make way for the D-Day landing, attacking Japanese warships in Singapore, securing the beaches of the Falklands for the Marines and Parachute Regiment and landing behind enemy lines during the Gulf War and cutting communication cables. The book also examines the SBS's modern role as a crack anti-terrorist force.show more
