Stirling fik skabt og oprettet sit eget specialstyrkeregiment i Nordafrika, SAS, Special Air Service, som med stort held opererede bag fjenden, tyskernes, linier under Ørkenkrigen, navnlig i Western Desert. Stirling blev en levende myte og legende, og fik tilnavnet the Phantom Major efter sigende af Rommel selv, bl.a. fordi han var utrolig heldig med sine hemmelige operationer og kunne bevæge sig med stor dygtighed langt inde i det tyske Afrikakorps' operationsområde uden at blive opdaget. SAS voldte fjenden stor skade i Nordafrika, bl.a. med sine ødelæggelser af flyvemaskiner, hangarer, benzindepoter, m.v. - og ikke mindst den psykologiske effekt på fjendens kampmoral med disse mange overraskelsesangreb og idelige småtræfninger. Forfatteren har skrevet en del andre krigsreportager og var under 2. Verdenskrig en anerkendt krigskorrespondent. Efter krigen fortsatte SAS som et berømt engelsk specialstyrkeregiment, navnlig med terroristbekæmpelse. Stirling selv blev taget til fange af tyskerne, prøvede en del flugtforsøg, og endte til sidst i Colditz fangelejren

The phantom major by Virginia Cowles( )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the dark and uncertain days of 1941 and 1942, when Rommel's tanks were sweeping towards Suez, a handful of daring raiders were making history for the Allies. They operated deep behind the German lines, often driving hundreds of miles through the deserts of North Africa. They hid by day and struck by night, destroying aircraft, blowing up ammunition dumps, derailing trains, and killing many times their own number. These were the SAS--Stirling's desert raiders, the brainchild of a deceptively mild-mannered man with a brilliant idea. Small teams of resourceful, highly trained men would penetrate beyond the front lines of the opposing armies and wreak havoc where the Germans least expected it
