SAS

I am currently reading a book “The Amazing SAS“by Ian McPhedran – the inside story of Australia’s special forces.

The SAS, special air service regiment, is among the world’s most respected special forces units, a specialised team of men from the Australian Defence Force who can be relied upon to handle the most difficult, strategically sensitive and dangerous of military tasks.

The book covers in detail about recent SAS deployments: East Timor, the 2000 Olympic games, the Tampa, the Afghanistan campaign and the regiment’s action–packed mission in Iraq. In this book, there are interviews with General Peter Cosgrove, Prime Minister John Howard, Chief of Army Lieutenant General Peter Leahy, former SAS commanding officers Gus Gilmore and Tim McOwan, and many SAS soldiers and officers.
