Descripción:

London, 1982, Kimber, 5th impression , hard bound in dust jacket, 6 x 9, 285 pp, illus, maps , VG/VG condition. ------------------------------------------------------This is the first-time the full story of Britain's toughest and most secret regiment has ever been written, and what a story it is. The men of the SAS started with raids in the Western Desert and Mediterranean, where they specialised in destroying aircraft on the ground; they moved on to Sicily, where they went in ahead of the landings, and on to the Aegean and the Adriatic, where small SAS forces tied down whole German divisions. They took part in the liberation of Athens, where their Commanding Officer rode in first on a bicycle, and passed onto Italy and France, where they set up headquarters behind the enemy lines, to Belgium, Holland and Germany, where they were always ahead of the armies. After 1945 they undertook deep probes into the jungles of Malaya and Borneo, developing the art of parachuting into trees and living for months on end in swamps. They also took part in operations in Southern Arabia, and developed entirely new techniques of training.This book was written with the full co-operation of the regiment and undoubtedly bears out the adage that 'truth is stranger than fiction'. Five per cent of those who apply for the regiment are eventually accepted and it is even harder to stay in, for performance is the sole arbiter. The unique quality of the SAS was not, however, physical toughness, but its combination with philosophic mental stamina. In these pages the reader will find many famous names, politicians, international athletes, artists, steeple-chasers, intellectuals, explorers; there has never been a regiment like it. The book is an immensely exciting, almost incredible story of the regiment from 1941 to 1971, on land, sea and air. N° de ref. de la librería

Sinopsis: This is the first time the full story of Britain's toughest and most secret regiment has ever been written, and what a story it is. The men of the S.A.S. started with raids in the Western Desert and Mediterranean, where they specialised in destroying aircraft on the ground; they moved on to Sicily, the Aegean and the Adriatic, where small S.A.S. forces tied down whole German divisions. They took part in the liberation of Athens, where their Commanding Officer rode in first on a bicycle, and passed onto Italy and France, where they set up headquarters behind the enemy lines, to Belgium, Holland and Germany, where they were always ahead of the armies. After 1945 they undertook deep probes into the jungles of Malaya and Borneo, developing the art of parachuting into trees and living for months on end in swamps. They also took part in operations in Southern Arabia, and developed entirely new techniques of training. This book was written with the full co-operation of the regiment and undoubtedly bears out the adage that 'truth is stranger than fiction', Five per cent of those who apply for the regiment are eventually accepted and it is even harder to stay in, for performance is the sole arbiter. The unique quality of the S.A.S. was not, however, physical toughness, but its combination with philosophic mental stamina. In these pages the reader will find many famous names, politicians, international athletes, artists, steeple-chasers, intellectuals, explorers; there has never been a regiment like it.

About the Author: "Philip Warner (1914-2000) enlisted in the Royal Corps of Signals after graduating from St Catharine's, Cambridge in 1939. He fought in Malaya and spent 1,100 days 'as a guest of the Emperor' in Changi and on the Railway of Death, an experience he never discussed. He was a legendary figure to generations of cadets during his thirty years as a Senior Lecturer at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst. Yet he will arguably be best remembered for his contribution of more than 2,000 obituaries of prominent army figures to The Daily Telegraph. In addition he wrote fifty-four books on all aspects of military history, ranging from castles and battlefields in Britain, to biographies of prominent military figures (such as Kitchener: The Man Behind the Legend; Field Marshall Earl Haig; Horrocks: The General who Led from the Front and Auchinleck: The Lonely Soldier) to major histories of the S.A.S., the Special Boat Services and the Royal Corps of Signals."

Descripción HarperCollins Publishers Ltd, 1971. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Used; Acceptable. Dispatched, from the UK, within 48 hours of ordering. The book is perfectly readable and fit for use, although it shows signs of previous ownership. The spine is likely creased and the cover scuffed or slightly torn. Textbooks will typically have an amount of underlining and/or highlighting, as well as notes. If this book is over 5 years old, then please expect the pages to be yellowing or to have age spots. Grubby book. This book is dirty and has significant shelf wear, however all text is there and readable, as such it is acceptable for sale, and is still a good read. Thanks.
