The world's most respected special forces unit, the Special Air Service (SAS), was inspired by another irregular unit, the Long Range Desert Group (LRDG) or simply Ghost Patrol. You may now accompany the authors in Ghost Patrol vehicles far, far behind Rommel's lines. While doing so you will acquire insights into some extreme raids and reconnaissance missions. You will become familiar with tactics and inventions of the Ghost Patrol that are still relevant today. This book is also the story of an LRDG research expedition to modern Egypt undertaken in original WWII Jeeps and described as a "2300-mile Sahara epic" by Classic & Sports Car magazine. Original LRDG training notes and other tips for extreme travellers are included.

This new hardback from Helion Books on the subject of the LRDG is, in my opinion, a little gem. [...] I thoroughly enjoyed this one. * Military Model Scene 15/07/2019 * This book is great. If you want to get a sense of the early days of UK Special Forces, this is an excellent entry point. * Army Rumour Service 15/07/2019 * This is much more than a straight "history" of the LRDG; it looks into what was actually involved in these deep missions into the desert and kind of men it took to undertake them. Very highly recommended. * 03/07/2019 * For those of you with an interest in human endurance as well as military history, this is two for the price of one. * Miniature Wargames *
