A unique and poignant record of a club created for heroes. There are just a handful of men and women alive today who served and fought with the Special Forces during the Second World War. They are a dwindling bunch of veterans in their twilight years whose tales of heroism and daring-do will soon be lost in time forever - yet they still regularly get together in a gentleman's club, right in the heart of London - The Special Forces Club.

About the Author:

Sean Rayment was the defence correspondent for the Daily Telegraph. He is the author of `Bomb Hunters', following the tours of duty of bomb disposal teams in Afghanistan. His time spent as a captain in 3 Para, plus his various connections throughout the armed services means he can open the doors to these unique veterans from WWII that have been closed to other writers over the years. He will be the first to properly tell their story.

Review:

`Rayment uncovers astonishing depths of courage and resourcefulness.' Sarah Sands, Evening Standard `Sean Rayment has gathered wartime experiences that have an extra resonance. For his veterans served in the Special Forces... [a] brilliant and often deeply moving book.' Sinclair McKay, Sunday Telegraph `An outstanding book offering a vital insight into the wartime adventures of that small community of Britain's war heroes who rarely speak publicly.' Chris Hughes, Daily Mirror `A cracking read, couldn't put it down.' Neil Chandler, Daily Star Sunday
