Rogue Heroes is a book about the Britain’s Special Air Forces also known as SAS. This new and unique group was designed and developed by what some called a young inexperienced aristocrat called David Stirling. Yes, he was young and did come from a wealthy family but he had an uncanny ability when it came to military strategy. While his seniors viewed the war as fighting as they always had by attacking face to face Stirling had a different idea that was not viewed as the right way based on traditional war strategies. Stirling’s saw a map that uncovered an obvious solution that would turn the war in their favor. Sterling brought several unconventional men together that would be the first SAS. These men would drive, parachute, boat, swim, and walk to their destination behind enemy lines and begin to sabotage planes, fuel tanks, ammo dumps, ship, and whatever else they could get their hands on to drive the enemy back. This new method of sabotage would change the nature of combat and how we would fight war in the future. A brilliant and fascinating book that demonstrates what the human mind can do without fancy technology or high-priced equipment.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
