There was so much potential in this film that was lost in the normal SAS cliches. The film was shot in dark sombre colours and looked to have been done on a minimal budget. The actors were not authentic. I dont think the equipment, what little you could see was either. The only authentic kit was the beret. The director had an irritating penchant for blacking out the screen every few minutes. Overall a eadtr of good money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Africa's Commandos, 21 Dec 2012
This book is an excellent and professional product. It is made up of stories from 108 former members of this great Regiment that was never defeated in battle. All the articles are relevant and provide a great history of the Battalion from inception to end, seen through the eyes of those that were there. There is a good mix of articles from officers, NCOs, troopies, regular and national service, front line and support crew.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a rip off, 9 Jan 2012
What a rip off this book is. A potentially great subject spoilt by laziness on the part of the author. All he has done is used lumps out of his previous book-Shunt to tell James Hunt's side of the story and rehashed and paraphrased previous books written by other authors -including Niki Lauda's own books to tell Lauda's side. The only new input he has added is salacious gossip regarding the love life of Lauda. Hunt's love life was already recorded in Shunt. What a load of balls and the book add's nothing to the motor racing side at all. Hardly mentions any other driver's performances nor puts the sport into the context of the time. A big disappointment.
