British SAS (World War II)

Special Forces unit: British SAS, World War Two

The Special Air Service was formed by David Stirling in 1941. Its purpose was to act as a desert raiding airborne force unit that would secretly fight behind enemy lines in the North African Campaign.

The first unit of the SAS, of around 60 men was called the “L” Detachment, Special Air Service Brigade.

This name was used to confuse the Axis into thinking it was a much larger paratrooper regiment.

  1. Fun Fact: The actor Sir Christopher Lee (Count Dooku, Saruman+ many others) served in the Long Range Desert Group that attempted to attack the German airfields like described in this video. Its just mental that he is famous all around the world for his acting and is still well known among todays generation for recent roles in LOTR and Star Wars, yet over 50 years ago he was fighting with the best of the best in WWll.
