How Special Forces Began

October 6, 2014 With Andy McNab

It remains a contentious┬áissue in military history but, probably, the British outfit called the “Special Air Service” was the beginning. It was put together at the time of the Falklands war between the UK and Argentina and then went on to secret missions in Asia and all over the middle east. One of the original SAS fighters, Andy McNab, tells the tale and recounts some truly daring assaults and escapes in this conversation from 2002.
