An eccentric and charismatic officer, Roy Farran rose to command an SAS squadron during World War II. His fascinating story of the early days of Britain's Special Service became an immediate best-seller when first published, and it continues to intrigue. Covering action throughout the Middle East, the Mediterranean, and Italy, Farran describes his capture and escape during the war, and how he eventually went on to lead some of the most daring operations far behind enemy lines.

About the Author:

Roy Farran began the war in the Royal Armoured Corps and took part in tank battles in the North African desert before being shipped to Crete for the epic action against German airborne forces. He was captured, but escaped and joined the SAS on his return to Egypt. Eccentric and charismatic, Roy Farran was the officer who demanded a piper be parachuted to join his SAS team and their partisan allies for an attack on a German HQ miles behind the front. These stories and more are all part of this classic memoir.
