Royal Marines, 1939-93 by Nick van der Bijl
Book DescriptionThe origin of the Royal Marines dates back to the formation of the Admiral's Regiment in the 17th century. Since then Marines have participated in more battles on land and sea than any other branch of the British Armed Forces. Their 'elite' status rests in the commandos - the one formation that is trained to be delivered to battle by helicopter or landing craft from ships. This book examines the units, organization and operations of the Royal Marines, focusing on their activity in various theatres of World War II (1939-1945) and their post-war operations in Northern Ireland, the Falklands (1982)and the Gulf (1990-1991).

5th Infantry Brigade in the Falklands War, Paperback (February 2014)» View all books by Nick van der Bijl
* Tells for the first time the story of 'the other brigade' in the Falklands War. * A controversial and not-altogether proud story of improvisation due to lack of resources, poor planning and lack of training. * A superb example of overcoming great difficulty to triumph in the end. * Interesting and contentious personality clashes.
