Description

And off we go to the deserts of North Africa with invaluable operational assistance from the LRDG, with setbacks, disasters, treachery, and the terrible and tragic losses of friends and comrades between and during the butchering and bolting. This is a narrative of wall-to-wall do-or-die action and daring, chronicling the exploits of some of the most highly-decorated soldiers of the twentieth-century. Mayne is something of an enigmatic figure, a poet warrior, who hated profanity, cared for the men in his charge and loved his family. For decades he worked as a war and conflict reporter for the world's major broadcasters, reporting from across Africa, South America, the Middle and Far East and winning numerous awards. Damien Lewis, bestselling author, describes the extraordinary bravery of Paddy Mayne and, it seems strange to say, the humanity of Mayne .

His slavery documentary told the story of a young girl from the Nuba tribe, seized in a raid and sold into slavery in Khartoum, Sudan's capital city, and of her epic escape. A superbly written account of the early days of the SAS during the North African desert campaign in WW2. Peter contributed his expertise to Brothers In Arms, as the author kindly notes in his Acknowledgements. The example normally given to illustrate this was a raid on Tamet airfield, when Mayne shot a number of German pilots in their mess.SAS Brothers in Armsis a fascinating character study of the men who founded the SAS and the desert war they fought during WW II.

It ends with the hunted becoming the hunters – a group of men intent on seeking out the Nazis responsible for their brethren’s deaths, on an ultra-deniable SAS mission to avenge a war crime. What unfolded – the longest mission ever undertaken by Allied special forces – was an epic of daring, courage, tragedy and survival that remains unrivalled to this day, and which rightly became a foundation stone of Special Forces legend.

In this regard, Damien Lewis' Churchill's Shadow Raiders reveals the crucial role of radar in defeating the Luftwaffe, itself a precedent for the Anglo-American landings in 1944. Both strong headed men were willing to put themselves in the line of fire, more often leading from the front than from behind, and Mayne especially would do anything to not leave a man behind. Hunted by thousands of crack German troops, at mission's end thirty-one SAS were listed as "missing - fate unknown". eplete with surprise, shock, action, heroic endeavour and glory, not to mention subterfuge, treachery and dismay, this is a classic combination of combat writing and breath-taking narrative non-fiction. The books featured on this site are aimed primarily at readers aged 13 or above and therefore you must be 13 years or over to sign up to our newsletter.A good yarn, based on the sources and for once accurately and evenly told (looking at you SAS Rogue Heroes).

Damien Lewis's new bestseller tells the action-packed, riveting story of the band of mavericks and visionaries who made the SAS.He was injured, and was hospitalised with bizarre tropical diseases – including flesh-eating bacteria, worms that burrow through the skin and septicemia – but survived all that and continued to report. Am not sure about all the negative things said about this seller by other people,,, because my experience was completely different, totally positive. This amount includes seller specified domestic postage charges as well as applicable international postage, dispatch, and other fees.
