Commandos from the Sea by John B. Dwyer

Book Description

For the first time the full story of U.S. amphibious special warfare units during World War II and the Korean War is revealed in gripping, painstakingly researched accounts of battles that few knew even occurred. Author and historian John B. Dwyer spent years gathering these first-person accounts of amphibious commando operations in Europe, North Africa, the Pacific, China and Korea. From secret joint military-OSS and CIA missions and thrilling submarine ops to river raids deep into Nazi-controlled North Africa to the training and insertion of Korean commandos for a secret war in North Korea to fatal engagements with Japanese occupation forces in China, Dwyer chronicles the heroic feats of men who were willing to try anything and go anywhere to accomplish their dangerous missions. With dramatic action shots of amphibious commandos in action, Commandos from the Sea is the definitive history of America's waterborne warriors of World War II and the Korean War.
