Wasn't sure really what I'd bought here and was a bit hesitant about listening. Very glad I did. An unsentimental narrative and narration of fascinating story! You couldn't make it up! Superb and comes well recommended.

Brilliant from start to finish, you can't help but love the cast, plus you can see the progression of attitudes from 1940's to modern day on special forces, what once once frowned upon as "ungentlemanly" and "not the way we wage war!" is now the goal of all armies, a fascinating piece of history, plus Andy Lasson is a monster of a man! (In the greatest sense)

This is an eminently readable story of the special boat service in ww2 that takes you to the major actions that were undertaken by this unit over the period. If you love a good adventure, especially a true one, you will love this book
The story of the inception of the elite British SBS unit during WWII isn't often told, and this book is a fantastic platform for the story. It expertly interweaves historical facts with blistering action, building suspense which leads to fast paced yet detailed action.
The story follows one of the founding fathers of the SBS, Anders Lassen, whose exploits and raw heroism never fail to amaze. The author goes to great lengths to portray what it was like to be living the life of a spec ops operator in wartime, constantly in danger and with minimal resources and support. This book does justice to their above - human efforts and sacrifices.
The narration is captivating and adds to the brilliance of the story and writing.
