A very in-depth and well illustrated history of this elite New Zealand Army unit, the SAS. Formed in the mid 1950's, they have seen considerable combat including operations in Malaya, Borneo and Vietnam. Since its formation in the mid-1950s the New Zealand SAS has seen active service in Malaya, Borneo and Vietnam where, without exception, it served with distinction. Like other SAS units, the NZ SAS's mission is to respond to those grim situations where Regular Army units - or even the civilian police force - may not be able to act efficiently. The role of the NZ SAS therefore requires an extraordinarily high degree of operational flexibility and an exceptional personnel. Dare to Win reviews the NZ SAS's rigorous selection process; it describes the training, equipment and weapons employed by the NZ SAS; and it studies the philosophy (a philosophy shared by SAS units worldwide) which gives the NZ SAS cohesion and direction. The book is illustrated by a remarkable collection of photographs of NZSAS personnel in action. by W.D. Baker. In war and in training. Large volume 9" x 11.5". 124 pages, 128 photos, 3 maps.
