The Special Air Service (SAS) Regiment is the world’s most deadly elite military unit. From spectacular hostage-rescue operations in the heart of London to covert counter-terrorist missions in Northern Ireland, the soldiers of the SAS are second to none. SAS: From WWII to the Gulf War is the ultimate reference work on this famous organization, covering the period from their creation to the infamous Bravo Two-Zero operation in the Gulf War of 1991.

Arranged alphabetically with more than 600 entries, the book offers the reader an in- depth analysis of every aspect of the unit’s history. All the Regiment’s battles and campaigns over a 50-year period, together with their economic, political and strategic background, are listed. In addition, the weapons, equipment and techniques used by the Special Air Service are given in full. Biographies of all the leading personalities that have worn the famous winged dagger badge, men such as ‘Paddy’ Mayne, David Stirling, the Regiment’s founder, and the man who commanded British forces during the First Gulf War – Sir Peter de la Billière – are included.

Accessibly written and illustrated with 140 photographs, as well as 15 maps and diagrams, SAS: From WWII to the Gulf War is an expert reference work on the best of elite special forces.
