About this item
Based on 'Gentleman's Jim's' diaries which he sent to his wife should he be captured, this is an account of the earliest days of the SAS.
A story of love and danger, courage, high drama and survival against the odds.
Set in wartime England, the western desert, Italy and France, it seeks to capture the spirit of the young soldiers at war in the newly emerging SAS and includes vivid descriptions of wartime army life and action against the enemy.
Illustrated with black and white photographs, the book is in fine condition, just showing slight signs of wear.
