British Commandos 1940 -1946 by Tim Moreman
Book DescriptionFrom their inception in June 1940, British Commando units conducted a succession of daring hit-and-run raids from the sea into North-West Europe, Scandinavia, Italy and the Middle East. Among the highly publicised Commando operations were the raids on Vaagso, Dieppe, and St Nazaire. The Commandos also spawned a range of other Special Forces, including the Special Air Service, Special Boat Service and the Parachute Regiment. This book provides a detailed examination of the Army (and later Royal Marine) Commandos raised in the United Kingdom, from 1940 through to 1946, when the Army Commandos were disbanded and the role was assigned exclusively to the Royal Marines.
