More Description

Britain's Special Air Service (SAS) is the longest standing and most respected special forces unit in the world. Established during the North African campaigns of World War II, the SAS has gone on to work and train with similar outfits throughout the world, including their counterparts in America's elite Delta Force.

The SAS has a reputation for ruthless efficiency whether operating deep behind enemy lines in Iraq and Bosnia or dealing with the ever-present terrorist threat, as demonstrated by their dramatic, high-profile intervention in the Iranian Embassy siege in London in 1980.

The Complete Encyclopedia of the SAS covers every aspect of the regiment's activities, training, equipment, specialized weaponry, and notable personnel from their beginnings as a roving desert strike force in 1941, to their much expanded modern-day role in clandestine operations and as a counter-terrorist unit.
