First Into Action: A Dramatic Personal Account of Life in the SBS by Duncan Falconer

The Special Boat Service draws its manpower solely from the Marine Commando Units. It was first into battlea month before the SASin the Falklands War, and again in the Gulf War, yet hitherto it is the SAS that has had by far the higher profile. This memoir is written from inside the SBS. The author tells how he trained with the Royal Marines in Deal before being recruited into the SBS at Poole. The regimen of ruthless training is described in detail, and the book also contains accounts of SBS operations in Ulster, Bosnia, and the Gulf War, and of the intense rivalry between the SASs individualist mentality and the more team-based, marine ethos of the SBS.
