In his new authorised history of the SAS, Joshua Levine tells the story of a small band of men who were brought together in the North African desert with the aim of delivering a radical new form of warfare.
To write the book, Joshua had exclusive access to the SAS archives and was able to unlock never-before-seen photographs and unheard personal accounts that vividly portray what life was like in the early days of the unit.
In this exclusive pre-publication book launch, Levine will draw on individual stories and personal testimony, including interviews with veterans and family members of the original troupe, to examine what it was like to fight, train and live as a soldier in the SAS.
