The men of the SBS are the maritime equivalent of their counterparts in the SAS; they are the elite of the British Special Forces and also the most secretive. Although SAS activity has been extensively documented, the SBS has remained in the state it prefers - a shadowy silhouette, with identities protected and missions kept from public view. Formed during the Second World War, when they took part in many daring raids (one of which was filmed as The Cockleshell Heroes), they were active in the jungle campaigns in the Far East, in the Falklands, the Gulf War and Bosnia. Since this seminal book was published in 1997, John Parker has been privy to much more inside information about the SBS's original operations and he brings the book right up to date with accounts of their exploits in East Timor, Somalia, Sierra Leone, Kosovo and most recently in Iraq.

Life wasn't easy for Tony Collins as he grew up in the mean streets of the East End of London in the years before the Second World War. After his mother died when he was still only seven years old, his father, unable to hold down a job while coping alone with four young children, was forced to send them to an orphanage. But Tony came through the hardships and graduated with flying colours from the school of hard knocks, to head straight for a career as a commando with the Royal Marines. During a stint in Malta Tony fell head over heels for a local beauty, and after marrying her he soon began to regard the island as his home. He went on to rise rose through the ranks to become a warrant officer, turning down the opportunity to become a regimental sergeant major back in the UK because it would have meant uprooting his family from the island he had grown to love. The Cockney Commando is a heart-warming story of triumph in adversity and of challenges overcome through love and courage.
