Description

The classic story of Robert Blair Mayne, late commanding officer of the first Special Air Service Regiment, and legend in his own lifetime. This, the original biography of Lieutenant Colonel Robert Blair Mayne, DSO (3 Bars), Legion d Honneur, Croix De Guerre and Colonel Paddy to his contemporaries, is a lively account of his life and wartime exploits with the SAS. As an Air-Commando, he became the scourge of the Nazis across North Africa, Italy, France, the Netherlands and Germany, while leading the most daredevil and dangerous regiment in the British Army. Such was his reputation that Hitler ordered that he was to be shot on sight. The personification of Irish courage and a man who commanded remarkable loyalty from his men, Colonel Paddy remains one of the most decorated soldiers in the history of the British Army. The original biography by Patrick Marrinan now back in print."
