SOLDIER ‘I’ S.A.S
FIRST 1st Edt 1989 HARD BACKED
Soldier l, so named to preserve his anonymity at the coroner’s inquiry into the Iranian Embassy siege, spent a remarkable eighteen years in the SAS, becoming a legend within that legendary force. This book tells the full story of those eighteen years and includes inside accounts of the operations in which Soldier I was involved: from the arduous training and selection process, through the embassy siege when Soldier I led the assault on the rear of the building, to parachuting into the freezing waters of the Falklands.
Soldier I: SAS also tells of lesser-known SAS activities: the gruelling Operation Jaguar and the terrifying battle of Mirbat where a handful of SAS men held back thousands of Yemeni tribesmen; undercover surveillance and raids on the IRA in Belfast; a trial of physical endurance in Hong Kong; and extreme danger underwater off the coast of Sudan.
But, as well as experiencing the action, the reader discovers the pressures and pleasures, the hardships and the camaraderie of daily life in the SAS — and, above all, gets inside the skin and the head of an extraordinary man.
