Summary Part 5: The Black and the Green. When global terrorism mushrooms Australia turns to the SAS "Black" role of counter-terrorism (CT). This gives SAS a future. But the "Green War" roles of free falling, diving and motorised patrols are preserved and perfected
Part 6: The Search for Meaning: As the novelty of CT wears off SAS finds other outlets for its talents in training foreign forces in The Philippines and in small peace keeping in Somalia, Rwanda, Bougainville, Cambodia, the Solomons etc
Part 7: The Postmodern Regiment. After the collapse of the USSR SAS faces a challenge from within--it has lost much of its vital unconventionality. But as it rallies to become truly postmodern disaster intervenes when two CT Black Hawks collide and crash in flames
