About this title

Synopsis:

To survive twenty years of active service in the SAS takes a particular kind of man. Pete Scholey, ex-Royal Artillery and Parachute Regiment, possessed the necessary mix of courage and coolness under extreme pressure. He joined the SAS in 1963 and eventually hung up his boots in 1986, twenty-three years later. During that time he served - often covertly - in many of the world's worst troublespots. Now in his autobiography he vividly describes life as a soldier at the sharp end, giving first-hand accounts of the many actions he was involved in, from jungle warfare in Borneo and desert fighting in Aden to undercover operations in Northern Ireland and his part in the setting up of the counter-terrorist team that was successfully used in the siege of the Iranian Embassy in 1980. He outlines the operational skills that took his teams deep into enemy territory without ever being captured, reveals how they achieved their objectives and describes the humour that he managed to find in the most hair-raising moments. An exciting account of some of this century's most sensitive and dangerous operations, told by a born raconteur, The Joker is also offers a genuine insight into the toughness, professionalism and camaraderie that has made the SAS the world's premier fighting force.

About the Author:

After completing national service, Peter Scholey turned around and signed up for the regular Army. He served two years with the Royal Army Service Corps, two years with the Royal Regiment of Artillery, then three years in the Parachute Regiment before volunteering for SAS in 1963. There he served twenty-three years in campaigns that took him all over the world.
