Britain’s SBS – or Special Boat Service – was the world’s first maritime special operations unit.  Founded in the dark days of 1940, it began as a small and inexperienced outfit, but went on to change the course of the Second World War via spectacular missions in the Mediterranean, the Atlantic, the Channel and the Far East. With the cooperation of the modern SBS, and with exclusive access to its archives, Saul David charts the extraordinary wartime achievements of this ultra-secretive unit.
