Description - America's Commandos by Leroy Thompson
America deployed a diverse group of special operations forces (SOF) throughout World War II and in Korea.

This valuable, fully illustrated guide includes more than 100 rare and unusual photographs of the men, uniforms, special equipment and insignia of these elite troops. Units covered include the Marine Raider regiments and Paramarines; Ranger battalions; 'Merill's Marauders'; the Special Service Force, OSS teams; Naval CDUs; and ski and mountain troops. AUTHOR: Leroy Thompson is one of the world's leading authorities on special army and police units. He is the author of several books on the subject including The Bodyguard Manual, The Hostage Rescue Manual and Secret Techniques of the Elite Forces. Integrated b/w photos and 8pp colour
