The Long Range Desert Group

This publication is a reprint of the National Archive papers covering the fabled LRDG from formation in 1940 to the end of the Campaign in North Africa in May 1943. It describes how the idea first came about, and how the LRDG was started. Personnel are named throughout this fascinating text, and it covers every operation carried out by LRDG. It also covers the role of LRDG when acting as the 'desert taxi service" for the fledgling SAS under David Stirling and Paddy Mayne. The operations consisted of the boring up to the highly interactive, and the paper reads almost as well as a novel, despite the fact that it is entirely true - this is what the LRDG got up to in the sands and rocks of North Africa.

With two A2 (b&w) maps.
