The term sabre squadron is typically used to refer to units descended from or influenced by cavalry such as armored or reconnaissance units. The term is named after the sabre used by soldiers on horseback and is the direct equivalent to the term rifle company used by infantry units.

In the first week of Operation Desert Storm, four SAS convoys slipped across the Saudi border into Iraq. Their mission was to destroy Saddam's mobile Scud missiles. Spence recounts in graphic detail the untold story of the most successful of those SAS convoys. It includes an extraordinary account of the successful attack on Victor Two, an Iraqi command facility central to Saddam's Scud operations. Owing to intelligence mistakes in Saudi, a handful of SAS soldiers found themselves pitched against a force of 300 Iraqis . . .

A good look at another side of the action in the Gulf War. An in-depth exploration of the British Special Forces clandestine services.

Cameron Spence served with the SAS during the gulf war, this is his story. As one of many new authors recounting there experiences in the British Armys elite forces Spence has gone out of his way to give us 'Civvies' a taste of life in the SAS.
Spence has a story to tell but he goes beyond that, he gives us an insight into the politics and dark humour that make the SAS so fascinating. As well as describing the engagements they encountered while in Iraq, Spence also describes the effect these events had on himself and the rest of the unit. The main 'action' part of the book happens just past the mid way point, but the story continues with minor engagements, enough to keep any action junky reading till the end.
This book isn't just about the SAS being the greatest force in the world, its about the people within this elite unit, the way they deal with the pressure they are under (often through humour and pulling pranks on each other) and how different there role is to the regular army divisions.
I gave this book 4 stars because it lacks a little in the action department and talks a little to much for my liking to make it a 5 star. But its a fantastic book regardless.

It gives you a a great insight into the SAS's misson's in Iraq durin the Gulf War (the 1st). It's a very exiting book and gives you a full range of what the SAS where up to. Apart from being a great story it's also well written by Cameron Spence. If your into military books especally special service books this is a must have. Very exciting story and true which is also good.

After the truth behind Bravo 2/0 came out, I take anything written by ex- gulf war 1 SAS with a grain of salt.
With Sabre Squadron, the grain's not that big. Having read through it with an ex-cavalryman's perspective, I found it to be a fairly accurate portrail of troop life in the field (right down to the little personality clashes). I cant attest to the accuracy of the events presented in the book, but at least the action sequences were believable (no one man armies taking on the hoards here). The writer's style is easy to digest. Just don't expect to be biting your fingernails from the tension, as he tends to retell it as if he was having a quiet drink. Overall it's a fairly good 'once over' read.

Sabre Squadron, the first book by Cameron Spence, is a thorughly enjoyable and grittly realistic view of the SAS operations as part of 'Desert Storm'. It gets right down to the nity grity of what was going through the authors mind during battle, during night time reconasance missions and during the periods of "Down Time" when there is nothing else better to do than contemplate life and home. Spences style is that of continous flow for lack of a better word for it. It keeps you constantly interested through out and is very detailed without you even knowing it. This is a clasic example of the role of the Special Air Service and any fan or enthusiast would be mad not to get it.

Gulf War. People think airplanes, cruise missiles, tanks and Saddam Hussein when they hear those two words. The British SAS were there before the land war began. They were in Iraq, Scud busting.
This book describes the horrors of war, both physically and mentally. It is action packed with very close calls and the battle at Victor Two.
I couldn't put this book down. It gets you involved and the descriptions are very realistic, you won't have trouble picturing the events, terrain and the people in your mind.
Having previously read two extraordinary - in my opinion - accounts of SAS operations, I found this book to be a disappointment and not nearly as enjoyable a read.
As interesting as the mission may have been to those involved, it seemed as though the author devoted far too much paper to describe in detail events that were, to be frank, quite boring and inconsequential. It also didn't help that what appeared to be the climax of the book occurred only half-way through, and left the last half of the book to simply fade off.
For first-time readers of this type of book, you may find it very interesting. I have already read two such books, and found this to be a rather dull in comparison.
