Hello everyone! I am a screenwriter in hollywood Ca. researching a film. I am currently writing a film about a legendary regiment of the SAS. Apparently there was a group of soldiers, mostly misfits and mentally difficient that were placed in a special unit and trained to be killing machines. They were so out of control by the end of the war that they would kill anything in their path, even their own troops. They were based in North Africa. My information so far is spotty at best and would love to hear from anyone with fresh information.

Got no info for your research, but welcome to ATS.
I'm sure you'll find some folks interested in what you speak of in the Military forum(s).

Welcome to ATS!

There is lots of information and discussion here on many topics from many points of view. There are members from all walks of life, nationalities and of all ages.

Take some time to look around and familiarize yourself with all of the boards including ATS for alternative and conspiracy related discussion; BTS for lighter subjects and chit chat; PTS for political discussion; and our very own news portal ATSNN.

Each board has several forums with it’s own assigned moderators. Whether your just reading or want to jump right in, we only ask that you follow the site's terms and conditions. This is a privately owned and run board where the rules are enforced.

If you have any questions you can check these handy resources:

Zedd’s Handbook of ATS Links
The Frequently Asked Questions page
And my very own: Answers to FAQs not in the FAQ page

Also very handy is the search feature (on the tab menu just bellow the banner at the top of every page) to make sure you are not double posting something already being discussed.

If you still have questions, don’t hesitate to U2U a moderator anytime. There is always somebody online and you don’t need a minimum of points or posts.

Have fun and see you around the boards!

Welcome to ATS.

You're talking about the famous Long Range Desert Group.

One story about them has stuck in my mind.

They had a base by an oasis far south but used to head north to the coast (where the fighting mainly was) to attack. One trooper had to walk all the way back. He had a tobacco tin and he urinated in it so he could drink it. He did make it back but by the time he did his urine was like syrup, his body had extracted almost every piece of moisture from it.

Anyone who hasn't heard about the LRDG i'd say it's worth a look. These guys were very hard men from different walks of life from ex public school boys to working class men.
