    Special Forces Heroes DVD

    Introduced by Lord Ashcroft, KCMG

    'When you go home, tell them of us and say,
    For your tomorrow, we gave our today.'
    John Maxwell Edmonds

    From the Cockleshell Heroes' daring 1942 raid deep into Nazi-occupied Europe, to the rescue of hostages from the clutches of terrorists at the Iranian Embassy in 1980, to the dangerous sorties into enemy territory during the Gulf wars, the actions of Britain's Special Forces truly epitomise heroism.

    Fascinated by bravery ever since he was a boy, Michael Ashcroft set about assembling what is believed to be the largest private collection of British Special Forces medals in the world. This four part, prime-time, series first broadcast on FIVE, draws on gripping stories from the collection which epitomise the heroism, professionalism and skill of our Special Forces. With first hand testimonies from those who were involved, the series captures the full drama of the events

    Programme 1: The Iranian Embassy Siege - London 1980
    Programme 2: Terror in the Skies - Mogadishu 1977
    Programme 3: Last Stand in Oman - Mirbat 1972
    Programme 4: Operation Certain Death - Sierra Leone 2004

    Introduced by Lord Ashcroft, who's book was the inspiration for this series, Special Forces Heroes is a much deserved tribute to countless extraordinary feats performed by countless extraordinary men.
