Summary

The best-selling, action-packed authoritative account of the SAS. Compelling listening for fans of military non-fiction.

For the soldiers and officers of Australia's Special Air Service (SAS) Regimentâ¿¿ this is not just their professional mottoâ¿¿ but a creed that shapes their lives. The SAS is among the world's most respected special forces unitsâ¿¿ a crack team of men from the Australian Defence Force who can be relied upon to handle the most difficultâ¿¿ strategically sensitive and dangerous of military tasks.

Now The Amazing SAS provides a thrilling insight into the way this country's SAS soldiers are selected and trainedâ¿¿ and reveals fascinating details about recent SAS deployments: East Timorâ¿¿ the 2000 Olympic gamesâ¿¿ the Tampaâ¿¿ the Afghanistan sampaign and the regiment's action-packed mission in Iraq.

The Amazing SAS

This is a FANTASTIC, EXCEPTIONALLY AND VERY DETAILED Book that really takes the listener inside the world of the VERY VERY BEST FIGHTING AND BRAVEST Regiments (both Australian and British) in the world and takes the listener back and forth in their very proud history including THE BIRTH of the most remarkable group of blokes in Military History. A ‘MUST HAVE BOOK to either LISTEN or READ’ even if you’re not particularly interested in Military history etc.

If you get through this you deserve the MC

Described as 'a thrilling insight into the way this country's (Australia's) SAS soldiers are selected and trained' - the bit I have issue with here is thrilling - thats a little off the mark. When you're used to Andy McNab and Chris Ryan, this book stands out for being such a disappointment - basically nothing happens and it may have been more interesting if it was an audio recording of someone reading the numbers between 1 and 10,000.

Bravo Two Zero has been jazzed up, it has been said that 'Andy' has done a dis-service to other members of the patrol - I wasn't there (or was i) ... but it was a good read. Thats one of teh key points of a good book - enjoyment! Such books about the SAS zing out as 'I want to know about this world of the elite and their covert ops' and I dont believe the difference is down to location.

This is just not a great book.
