In the dark and uncertain days of the African campaign when Rommel's tanks were smashing forward 16-ward Suez, a handful of daring raiders were making history for the Allies. Armed with Jeeps, grenades and machine guns this special attack force operated deep behind German lines, hiding by day and striking at night, destroying airplanes, blowing up ammunition dump£, derailing trains and killing many times their own number. In a story packed with danger, daring and excitement, here are the Desert Raiders and their leader David Stirling, the Phantom Major.
