Synopsis

Stirling's Men by Gavin Mortimer

The first ever officially sanctioned history of the SAS in World War II.

A riveting history book that reads like a novel, STIRLING'S MEN investigates the story of the SAS from its creation by David Stirling to the last battles of World War II. This is the first account of the SAS to be officially supported by the veterans and based on their unique first-hand testimony.

Gavin Mortimer weaves their stories together to produce a fabulous page-turning narrative that will capture the imagination.
