In 1963, the former British colony of Malaya was lobbying for the formation of a new political entity, the Federation of Malaysia, Singapore, Sabeh (North Borneo), Brunei and Sarawak. Viewing this as a threat to his dreams of expansion, President Sukarno of Indonesia began infiltrating insurgents into Borneo.

"On August 2, 1990, Iraqi tanks rolled into Kuwait and put a quarter of the worlds oil reserves at risk. This led to the spectacular Hundred Day War known as Operation Desert Storm. Involved in that war, but secretly, was the legendary Special Air Service the SAS!As specialists in desert warfare, the SAS were plunged into a maelstrom of highly dangerous, covert operations often deep inside enemy territory. Their activities included reconnaissance, espionage, sabotage, the capture of prisoners, the rescue of hostages, infiltration of Iraqi towns, and daring hit-and-run raids in their renowned `Pink Panther armed Land Rovers. Some were captured and tortured. Others were executed. Nevertheless, fighting covertly alongside the `Desert Rats of the 7th Armoured Brigade, in a land of burning sand and featureless, blazing sky, the SAS performed feats of daring that became legendary even before the Hundred Day War had ended. Soldier SAS: Behind Iraqi Lines is the first in a series of novels based on this extraordinary regiment a thrilling `factoid adventure about the most daring soldiers in military history: the SAS!"

Soldier F : S.A.S., guerillas in the jungle by Shaun Clarke( )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1948 Communist terrorists were waging a bloody war against estates and rubber-plantation owners in Malaya. Chased into the interior by British Army units, the guerrillas soon became experts at survival and evasion, emerging from the jungle only to launch increasingly ferocious attacks. In 1952, on the recommendation of Lieutenant-Colonel 'Mad' Mike Calvert, veteran of the Chindit campaigns in Burma, 22 SAS was formed as a special counter-insurgency force. Three years later the re-formed SAS began their jungle patrols. They learned how to survive for weeks at a time in hostile terrain, often waist-deep in water, and under attack from wild animals, leeches and poisonous insects. That extraordinary campaign climaxed in a nightmarish two weeks in the Telok Anson swamp tracking the troops of the notorious 'Baby Killer', Ah Hoi, while the regiment's dreadful and unforgettable experiences in the Malayan jungle laid the foundations for the SAS's legendary survival skills
Soldier V : into Vietnam by Shaun Clarke( )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In June 1966, after completing final training for Vietnam on Exercise Traiim Nau in the jungles and swamps of New Guinea, 3 Squadron SAS (Australian Special Air Service) embarked by boat and plane from Australia to set up a Forward Operating Base in Phuoc Tuy province, a swampy hell of jungle and paddy-fields forty-five miles east of Saigon. The Viet Cong main forces units had a series of bases in the jungle, and the political cadres controlled most of the villages. The Aussies were still working under appalling conditions when three members of the legendary 22 SAS arrived secretly from Bradbury Lines, Hereford, to give assistance in what was to be a major assault against the Viet Cong. These three were Sergeant Jimmy 'Jimbo' Ashman, who had been with the Regiment since its foundation in North Africa in 1941; Sergeant Richard 'Dead-eye Dick' Parker, who had previously fought with the SAS in Malaya, Borneo and Aden; and Lieutenant-Colonel Patrick 'Paddy' Callaghan, who had been pulled out of administration specially for this secret mission
