We welcome back the acclaimed military historian whose latest book is subtitled From Desert Rats to Dogs of War:The Mavericks who Made the SAS. In the summer of 1943, the largest invasion fleet ever assembled sailed for Europe, aiming to bulldoze its way onto Nazi shores. At its vanguard went a few hundred elite forces soldiers led by the legendary SAS commander Blair ‘Paddy’ Mayne. He’ll talk about how they bludgeoned their way through the most heavily defended enemy shoreline, so enabling the ensuing forces to follow on, and what happened next.
