SHERBORNE LITERARY SOCIETY PRESENTS SAUL DAVID - SBS SILENT WARRIORS
Saul David is a Sunday Times bestselling military historian, novelist, and broadcaster.
Named one of the Daily Telegraph's best books of 2021 and in the Sunday Times Top 10 bestsellers, this is the first authorised history of Britain's SBS or Special Boat Service - the world’s first maritime special operations unit. Founded in the dark days of 1940, it started as a small and inexperienced outfit that leaned heavily on volunteers’ raw courage and boyish enthusiasm. It went on to change the course of the Second World War - and has served as a model for special forces ever since.
Written with the full cooperation of the modern SBS – the first time this ultra-secretive unit has given its seal of approval to any book – and exclusive access to its archives, SBS: Silent Warriors allows Britain’s original special forces to emerge from the shadows and take their proper and deserved place in our island story.
