The Long Range Desert Group: History & Legacy

The Long Range Desert Group

The world's most respected special-forces unit, the Special Air Service (SAS), was inspired by another irregular unit, the Long Range Desert Group (LRDG) or simply Ghost Patrol.

You may now accompany the authors in Ghost Patrol vehicles far, far behind Rommel's lines. While doing so, you will acquire insights into some extreme raids and reconnaissance missions. You will become familiar with tactics and inventions of the Ghost Patrol that are still relevant today.

This book is also the story of an LRDG research expedition to modern Egypt, undertaken in original WWII Jeeps and described as a "2,300-mile Sahara epic" by Classic & Sports Car magazine. Original LRDG training notes and other tips for extreme travelers are included.
