The ladies from the farm would laugh underneath the papaya trees and hold their babies as they shared stories from their day. Born of the Desert gets the highest marks for superb writing and for being undeniably one of the best and unparalleled windows to the early days of the newly formed Special Air Services, L-detachment under David Stirling’s command.
