Fire from the Forest: The SAS Brigade in France, 1944

Fire from the Forest: The SAS Brigade in France, 1944 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A comprehensive account of the behind-the-lines missions that supported the D-Day landings and the breakout from Normandy. The SAS mounted 36 operations behind enemy lines, from sabotaging railways to ambushing German units on their way to the front. Some achieved results out of all proportion to the small numbers of men involved. Others, like the ill-fated "Operation Bulbasket," led to the execution and capture of many SAS operatives. This bloody tale exposes the limits as well as the potential of elite military units and the civilian resistance movements who fought alongside them.

Synopsis:

SAS and French resistance versus the SS.
