Brothers in Arms: A Memoir of War and Friendship in the SAS.pdf
Sekonaia Takavesi was born in Fiji in 1943. On November 13, 1961 he enlisted in the British Army leaving the Pacific island, joining the King's Own Border Regiment. Two years later, he successfully sought selection to the SAS. He fought in the Battle of Mirbat in 1972 and was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal. Takavesi served in the SAS for thirteen years.
In the words of Andy McNab, Sekonaia Takavesi is 'The SAS man's SAS man'. This extraordinary story will take you from the idyllic beaches of Fiji to a world of high octane conflict with the SAS - culminating with Tak's crucial role in the Battle of Mirbat. Described by Andy McNab as 'the stuff of Regimental legend...the SAS's answer to Rorke's Drift'. Offering a rare insight into the making of an SAS legend. BROTHERS IN ARMS also tells the story of the deep and enduring comradeship between Tak and Laba, another legendary Fijian SAS man who remains, to this day, the only trooper whose heroism is enshrined in a statue at the elite regiment's Credenhill HQ.
