‘Damien Lewis is both a meticulous historian and a born storyteller’ Lee Child

Five of the most daring escapes carried out by the famous fighting force during World World Two.

From the birth of the SAS, to the post-D-Day battles for Nazi-occupied Europe, these gripping true stories cover some of the most iconic operations of the Regiment, and its key characters.

In this new volume, best-selling military historian Damien Lewis has worked closely with World War Two veterans and their families to bring to life previously untold tales of courage and endurance beyond compare.

Wartime diaries, letters, mission reports, interrogation transcripts and more reveal the most terrifying yet astounding moments of SAS fighters’ lives as they were hunted by the enemy and forced to fight their way out of certain death or capture.
