Eddie Stone and John McAleese talk candidly about how to get into the SAS and about life inside the world’s most elite regiment. We look at the rigorous selection process faced by recruits – how the Regiment whittles down the hundreds of applicants who think they are good enough to a handful of exceptional soldiers. But passing selection is only the first step to becoming an SAS trooper; we examine how to survive continuation training and what it takes to become operationally effective. Eddie and John talk extensively about their lives in the Regiment: training, combat, the esprit de corps and how their careers have fared since leaving.
Led by Eddie Stone, a team of four SAS veterans re-enact a whole range of dramatic scenarios: on the battlefield, behind enemy lines, evasion and interrogation. Stone gives a step-by-step guide to each reconstructed mission and, with high-tech imaging equipment and computer graphics, he explains the team's strategies while his men demonstrate their weapons and their skills and reveal how they escaped death. Features a recreation of a typical SAS mission.
