SAS Rogue Heroes

Kudos for BBC One

Based on Ben Macintyre’s best-selling book of the same name, SAS Rogue Heroes is a dramatized account of how the world’s greatest Special Forces unit, the SAS, was formed under extraordinary circumstances in the darkest days of World War Two.

Cairo, 1941. David Stirling – an eccentric young officer is frustrated with the military authorities and their handling of the current war strategy. Convinced that traditional commando units don’t work, a view shared by another young officer, Jock Lewes, the pair create a radical plan that flies in the face of all accepted rules of modern warfare.
