SAS to Gulf Command - The Autobiography.
General Sir Peter De La Billiere was a commander who made men do almost impossible things by doing them himself first. He was a soldier who, from the most undisciplined and unpromising beginnings, achieved complete mastery of himself and the men who fought under him. The SAS is where he found his calling: the wars he fought - in Malaysia, Oman, Borneo, Aden, and the Falklands - form a roll-call of Britain's post-Second World War battle honours.
De La Billiere's autobiography is fascinating not only for his derring-do soldiering career, but his sense of endless quest and ease in taking risky decisions. For anyone who wants to know about the SAS, about British military action since the war, or who simply wants to read the compelling life-story of this most charismatic of leaders, 'Looking For Trouble' is essential reading.
