This is a great book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Phantom Major: The Story of David Stirling and the SAS Regiment (Paperback)
I bought this book many years ago and have just replaced that worn out copy.
A true review of the birth of the SAS with an easy but compelling style of writing.
This is before the sensationalisation of special forces and demonstrates the hardship of desert campaigns without air cover or all the high tech gizmos that exist now.
The invention of the lewis bomb, the realisation of the impact of the jeep on ground targets are but 2 special moments in the book.
Get it and read it. If you like military history, this is an absolute must.
