Explains that the British Special Forces, the SAS and SBS, originated in the Second World War; the Special Army Services in the fight against Rommel in North Africa, and the Special Boat Service in counterinsurgency measures in the Malaya Peninsula. As a result, the tradition was established to train Special Forces to operate in small teams, each team member to be an expert paratrooper and at least one person to be an explosives expert.
