SAS Operations: More Than Daring. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: The Special Air Service is one of the most highly skilled and effective components of the British Army. Provided here is a welcome insight into the history and unique function of the SAS since its formation. This book traces the variety of special operations from the first raids in the North African desert in World War II to the remarkable achievements in the Falklands' bleak terrain, the harsh deserts of Iraq, and the ethnic confusions of Bosnia. James Ladd describes the innovative and often dangerous techniques that the SAS has developed over the years and shows through numerous examples how the determination and ingenuity of the individual officer and trooper is second to none. Whether in the jungles of Borneo, on the streets of Northern Ireland or in the mountains of Bosnia, the reputation of these keenly motivated soldiers remains unsurpassed, while their use of new types of weapons in this electronic age offers some guidance to the likely forms of warfare in years to come.
