The SAS is in the news every time there is a small scale conflict or a need for behind-the-lines patrols. This book is misnamed because it is more of a muscular narrative, not dry reference material. It is very easy to read, and it is broken down into chapters which help the reader fine turn his interest in this premier military unit.
