A BBC release of the early and founding years of the British SAS set in WWII.
Quite a modern view of them with a soundtrack supplied by Oz rock band ACDC its not too bad a series.

During World War II, eccentric young officer David Stirling is hospitalised in Cairo after a training exercise accident. Bored, he starts thinking that the accepted war methods are wrong and hits on a radical plan. He fights for permission to recruit the toughest, boldest and brightest soldiers for a small undercover unit that will create mayhem behind enemy lines. More rebels than soldiers, Stirling's team are every bit as complicated, flawed and reckless as they are astonishingly brave and heroic.

Anyone else caught this yet and viewed it?

Hope it comes to the U.S. Maybe Netflix or Amazon will pick it up.

Yes, the entire series watched by me and Lynn in short order.

A triumph, in my reckoning.

Obviously it’s hyperbolic, and you need to suspend credulity now and then, but I thoroughly recommend it.
