Britain's Special Air Service is the Special Forces regiment upon which all others are based. Its men comprise some of the most skilful, highly trained and motivated soldiers in the world. Now ex-SAS sergeant Eddie Stone (SAS - Are you Tough Enough?) reveals how the SAS performs close protection missions - and lethal counter-terrorist hostage rescue assaults. Using ex-SAS men, SAS Survival Secrets - Guardians Against Terror is a vivid and detailed recreation of a typical close protection mission. A four man SAS team is assigned to protect an uncooperative British Minister on a foreign state visit. At first the team's meticulous planning pays off, but they are overruled on security by local forces. When the Minister and foreign leaders are kidnapped and held hostage, the team must don their 'Black Kit' and launch a rescue mission... On the mission, Eddie Stone is joined by John McAleese, MM, a real-life veteran of the Iranian Embassy assault team and a man with over twenty years' experience of providing close protection services to both British Prime Ministers and members of Royalty. Together, they reveal both the secrets of successful close protection and the SAS techniques for hostage rescue.
