4.0 out of 5 stars Shamrock in the Desert, 22 April 2012
This review is from: He Who Dared and Died: The Life and Death of a SAS Original, Sergeant Chris O'Dowd, MM (Hardcover)
A fascinating account of a young Irishman's role in the early days of the SAS. O'Dowd was keen to join the fight against Fascism, despite his country's neutral stance. Realising there would no accolades from his fellow-countrymen he was, nevertheless, prepared to pay the ultimate price.
The book moves along at a blistering pace that almost cajoles the reader to turn the next page. While not as detailed as other books on the early days of the SAS (eg. Stirling's Men by Gavin Mortimer, it is still an excellent read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A worthy testament to a brave young Irishman, 4 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: He Who Dared and Died: The Life and Death of a SAS Original, Sergeant Chris O'Dowd, MM (Hardcover)
This book is an excellent read, not without its lighter moments, away from the fighting. The author, nephew of Sergeant Chris O'Dowd, gives a narrative account of his uncle's bravery and exploits as part of an elite team of men in the Special Forces during World War Two who later became military legends. The book also gives background on the creation of the SAS and its early history. A worthy testament to a brave young Irishman.
