Ultimate soldier. Ultimate mission. But can the SAS distract the Nazis to allow airborne landings to go ahead?

September 1944: in the wake of the successful `Anvil' landings, the Allies plan airborne landings in the Orleans Gap. To `soften' the enemy beforehand, they decide to drop a squadron of men and jeeps in Central France, to hit enemy positions to distract attention from the landings taking place elsewhere

Operation Kipling begins when 46 jeeps and 107 well-armed SAS men from C Squadron are parachuted in with orders to establish a base and contact the Maquis - Frenchmen living in makeshift forest camps, conducting sabotage missions behind enemy lines.

Even as they are setting up camp, the airborne landings are cancelled and the SAS ordered to conduct `aggressive' patrolling. Over the coming weeks, C Squadron must carry out a succession of high risk night raids against the Germans, racing into occupied towns in jeeps, firing on the move, and racing out again: to continually harass the enemy and inflict heavy casualties. Or die trying.
