Often covert hit-and-run operations involving very small numbers of highly skilled men, those who partake in these missions know that their goals involve a high level of risk. These are men who would die for their country, no questions asked. With many incredible stories from particularly World War II, including the Cockleshell Heroes, and other conflicts from the 20th century, such as the Iranian Embassy siege, this collection of real action adventure brings Britains wars to life. Each of the stories is truly thrilling, and is taken from the collection of medals Lord Ashcroft has assembled.
