After Rommel’s defeat in Africa, the SAS was transferred to Europe, and they fought in Sicily, France, and Italy, this time with a different mission. In this theatre, their mission was not simply sabotage, but arming and training underground fighters. Except here, it was much more perilous. There was nowhere to hide. Always outnumbered, always surrounded, they were forced to fight alongside guerillas who were sometimes unreliable, gutless, or treacherous.
