SAS in Action

The SAS in Action is about the modern SAS: its role, its enemies, and its pursuit of excellence. This book examines the SAS from its origins as a rough-and-ready commando unit in the Western Desert in World War II, through the counter-insurgency operations in Malaya and Borneo in the 1950s, to its modern role as a reconnaissance and counter-terrorist unit.
