Format: Dead Trees
The SAS (Special Air Service) was a mixed group of men. Some from wealth and some had just normal jobs before the war. But when they got together they formed a lethal team that would parachute in quietly and place bombs on parked plane at a Luftwaffe runway then disappear back into the desert. They helped open the door for the rest of the forces to get much-needed supplies. They continued to push and live mostly off the grid and would only come out to strike. Their small numbers in a few highly trained groups worked independently and were equally as deadly. As their successes became more well known the Germans started hunting them. After the capture of a few of the SAS leadership, new people had to step up to lead. This is another great WWII example of determination, doggedness, and sheer bravado.
