Summary

SAS : British Special Air Service


A Look at What It's Like to Be Inside the U.S. and British Special Forces Take a look inside these top-secret special operations of the U.S. and British military. They are responsible for the world's safety and perform some of the most dangerous missions around, but the work done by special operations units usually goes unpublicized. In these books, readers will learn about military history, the need for the creation of each branch, and what it is like to be a member of a special operations team. After witnessing many failed operations during World War II, Britons Jock Lewes and David Stirling recognized the need for a small, highly trained force. Eventually, the SAS was born, and it became the model for many of today's special operations units. This book covers the conception and the history of the SAS, selection, training, equipment, and the future of the unit.
