Synopsis:
The Special Air Service, the Special Boat Squadron, the US 1st Air Calvary Division (Airmobile), the Israeli Paratroop Regiment - these and other such highly-trained special forces have secured some of the military successes of the modern era. Included here are graphic accounts of 2 Para at Goose Green in the Falklands War, the ending of the 1980 Iranian Embassy siege, Otto Skorzeny's daring rescue of Mussolini and the SBS's valiant raid on occupied Simi during World War II. This is a collection of stories, about the secret armies, which have formed the cutting edge of modern warfare. Jon E. Lewis edited "True War Stories".
