The UK is Way Too Besotted with Its SAS | The Washington Post

Must Read

The Special Air Service regiment’s 1941–1942 North African experiences were depicted in the new BBC miniseries SAS Rogue Heroes, which is based on a best-selling book by Ben Macintyre.  

The words “Contains strong language, prolonged violence, and upsetting scenes” are displayed before a group of British World War II soldiers shoots their way into live combat against Hitler’s legions. Major David Stirling, a Scottish aristocrat, and the outcasts he enlisted for the unit are depicted. Modern rock is used as the series’ musical backdrop; as Stirling’s vehicles charge toward an adversary airport, “I Fought the Law” by The Clash plays. Along with the monarchy and James Bond, Stirling’s Men’s descendants are now among our best-selling brands. The SAS has cemented its place in contemporary British legend mainly to more contemporary fighters.
