About this Product
SAS Heroes contains former SAS member Pete Scholey's memories of 20 soldiers who were genuine heroes, although many were never recognised as such during their lives or even in death. It is a book of stories about soldiers who fought for their country with no desire to be famous, feted or rewarded, many of whom died in action. A few received medals, and all earned the respect and admiration of their fellow soldiers, their names and faces etched into the true history of the SAS. Some of the stories of Pete's heroes have never been told before and certainly none of the tales of combat and life in the regiment have been told in such a touching, real and compelling manner.
Pete Scholey was lucky enough to discover what he wanted to do with his life at a young age, and he stuck with it. He was, as he put it, 'a lifer' in the most respected, admired and toughest British Army regiment, the SAS. For 20 years Pete served in some of the world's most hostile terrain, patrolling, cooking, fighting, fixing and even laughing as enemy soldiers sought to expel him and his small band of fellow soldiers from whatever foxhole, jungle or sand dune that they were holed up in.
