75 YEARS AFTER THEIR FIRST MISSION, THE TRUE STORY OF HOW THE LEGEND BEGAN
The true and little known story of the formation of the SAS in North Africa in 1941.
David Stirling and Jock Lewes form an unlikely partnership to create and train a new special forces unit known as ‘L’ Detachment, SAS. Despite disaster on their first mission parachuting into high winds, they regroup on the ground and single handedly end the siege on Tobruk by destroying the Luftwaffe’s air superiority. However Jock, whose ideas formed the basis of the unit, sacrifices himself to save his colleagues on the journey home.
