SAS Brothers in Arms (Paperback)Damien Lewis (author)
Recounting tales of military derring-do with his characteristic aplomb, the author of The Flame of Resistance chronicles the birth of the SAS during the most desperate days of the Second World War.
Damien Lewis' new bestseller tells the action-packed, riveting story of the band of mavericks and visionaries who made the SAS. Using hitherto untold stories and new archival sources, Damien Lewis follows one close-knit band of warriors from the SAS foundation through to the Italian landings - chronicling the extraordinary part they played as the tide of the Second World War truly turned in the Allied's favour.
This is a narrative of wall-to-wall do-or-die action and daring, chronicling the exploits of some of the most highly-decorated soldiers of the twentieth-century.
