MEN WHO MADE THE SAS


MEN WHO MADE THE SAS

GAVIN MORTIMER    Book Number: 91787    Product format: Paperback

Sub-titled 'The History of the Long Range Desert Group', established in June 1940, the LRDG was the inspiration of scientist and soldier Major Ralph Bagnold, a contemporary of T. E. Lawrence who, in the inter-war years, explored the North African desert in a Model T Ford automobile. One of the foremost experts on wartime British Special Forces, Gavin Mortimer takes us from the founding the LRDG, through their treacherous journey across the Egyptian Sand Sea and beyond and their valiant contributions to the war effort which can now be finally recognised and appreciated. Without them there would be no SAS. Chapters include Old Friends In Cairo, Piracy on the High Seas, We Obliterated the Germans, Courage Was a Word None of Us Liked, Rommel Didn't Fear Anything, We Buried Him in a Cottage Garden, The Bravest Man I've Ever Met, and The Bomb Was Ticking among them. The book is dedicated to 'The veterans themselves who allowed me to intrude upon memories that had lain dormant for decades.' With map, archive photos, 276pp in paperback.
