Publisher's Summary

The Ultra-Secret Unit That Posed As Nazi Stormtroopers
The Most Daring Mission Ever Undertaken
SAS Ghost Patrol is the explosive true story of the day in 1942 when the SAS donned Nazi uniforms to perpetrate the most audacious and daring mission of the war. Beyond top secret, deniable in the extreme (and of course enjoying Churchill's enthusiastic blessing), this is one of the most remarkable stories of wartime lawlessness, eccentricity and raw courage in the face of impossible odds - a thoroughly British undertaking.
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. Written with Lewis's signature authenticity and dramatic verve, SAS Ghost Patrol is peopled by a cast of the utterly maverick and the extraordinary. In its quirky eccentricities and outrageous rule-breaking, this is a story that only the British could have authored, and with such panache and aplomb. It may read like the stuff of impossible myth or folklore, but every single word is true.

Epic Story of Desert War Operations

Words are simply not enough to express the quality and performance of this publication in audio form. Well written, very well performed it portrays actual events with exceptional clarity and prose to enable to listener (reader) to be part of the special operations that took place in 1942.

Must have in any war history audible library.

Courage and Adversity in The Desert War

It's more than likely that this is not your first Damien Lewis book. You will, therefore know what to expect by now; a well-told tale of daring, courage and bravery amongst seemingly hopeless odds and Ghost Patrol certainly doesn't disappoint here.

But although the incredible true story of the commando raids on the North African coast provide an almost unbelieveably exciting read/listen, their authenticity is beyond doubt. There is no need to embelish any word of their stories with novel-esque adrenaline; it's all true and that's what makes the book such a gripping and important piece of history-writing.

Another masterpiece from Damien.
