Osprey's The SAS in World War II captures the peril and tension of initial Special Air Service (SAS) raids against Axis airfields and other targets.
Following a brief introduction, Gavin Mortimer chronicles the elite unit's formative years and achievements from the Desert War through the final push into Germany. Including first-hand accounts from surviving veterans, the author plunges readers into each operation and aftermath.
At least 114 historical photographs augment Mortimer's comprehensive account. A glossary, chapter notes, select bibliography and an index complete Osprey's exemplary effort.
My sincere thanks to Osprey Publishing for this review sample!
