THEY ARE THE MOST ELITE AND MYSTERIOUS SPECIAL FORCES UNIT IN THE WORLD - BUT THEY ARE NOT THE SAS. The Special Boat Service is a small, clandestine and highly professional unit whose team based ethos and exemplary combat record has created an intense rivalry with the SAS. At the age of nineteen, Duncan Falconer was the youngest man in recent years to join the unit and rose quickly to become one of its most skilled undercover operatives. Through his own extraordinary experiences, Falconer recalls his leading role in SBS operations in Northern Ireland, the Falklands and the Gulf. He recounts the missions that have contributed to the unit's astounding success in the fight against terrorism and drug - smuggling, and charts the long standing power struggle between the SBS and the SAS. A fascinating insight into the secret world of the special forces, First Into Action is the Bravo Two Zero for the SBS.
