Desde los archivos secretos S.A.S. y en la pluma del aclamado historiador Ben Macintyre, la primera historia autorizada de la más famosa y misteriosa organización militar del mundo. El S.A.S. (Special Air Service) británico se creó en julio de 1941 como un cuerpo de operaciones especiales, el primero de su género. Comenzaron en el desierto del Norte de África, donde sus hombres eran lanzados en paracaídas tras las líneas enemigas para realizar operaciones de sabotaje, como volar aviones y depósitos de petróleo, y para obtener información de los enemigos capturados. Luego siguieron combatiendo en Italia, en Francia y en la Alemania nazi hasta el fin de la guerra. En sus filas había militares al estilo tradicional, pero la mayoría de sus reclutas, de todas las nacionalidades y pelajes, eran inadaptados, granujas dispuestos a jugarse heroicamente la vida, pero capaces también de acciones brutales y de cometer grandes errores. Ben Macintyre ha sido el primer investigador a quien se ha permitido consultar la documentación del cuerpo, lo que le ha permitido reconstruir las vidas y hazañas de estos héroes singulares y narrar sus acciones de guerra con toda fidelidad.

Special Forces Sniper Skills is a hard hitting account of the men, weapons and techniques used to coldly eliminate high value targets on the battlefield. Though many books have become best-sellers through telling one side of the story – a sniper's experiences, a training manual or a weapons catalogue – none before have combined the whole spectrum of a sniper's life and skills into one gripping book. This book examines the role of the sniper, and the unique skills employed, when serving as part of a Special Forces unit including the British SAS, the US Navy Seals and the Russian Spetznaz. The book is illustrated with photographs of every aspect of the sniper's trade and stories from the real-life experiences of the author's comrades: men who have served in almost every overt and covert conflict since World War II.
