SAS Operation Storm

SAS Operation Storm

SAS OPERATION STORM is the inside story – told by those who took part – of the greatest secret war in SAS history. The tipping point, Mirbat, South Oman, 19 July 1972 is one of the least-known yet most crucial battles of modern times.

If the SAS had been defeated at Mirbat, the Russian and Chinese plan for a communist foothold in the Middle East would have succeeded, with catastrophic consequences for the oil-hungry West.

SAS OPERATION STORM is a page-turning account of courage and resilience. Mirbat was a battle fought and won by nine SAS soldiers and a similar number of brave local people – some as young as ten years old – outnumbered by at least twenty-five to one.

Roger Cole, one of the SAS soldiers who took part, and writer Richard Belfield have interviewed every SAS survivor who fought in the battle from the beginning to the end – the first time every single one of them has revealed their experience.

SAS OPERATION STORM is a classic story of bravery against impossible odds, minute by minute, bullet by bullet.
