Abstract:

In 1970 the SAS was called in to support the Sultan of Oman's armed forces in their fierce campaign against a Communist armed insurrection. This is the gripping story of the part played in the conflict by squadrons of the 22nd Special Air Service Regiment, the first full SAS squadron in the region. Written by the man who commanded that unit and who successfully raised the first bands of Dhofari irregulars to fight for the Sultan, SAS: Operation Storm provides a unique and personal insight into what was to become one of the most successful counter-insurgency campaigns of the twentieth century.
