It is indeed remarkable, since the archives of the Second World War must have been pillaged, ransacked, burrowed into, and turned over almost as thoroughly as Monte Cassino itself, that no book has been written about one of the strongest units created during that or any other conflict. The unit was called Ten Commando-and the shroud that enveloped it at the time has scarcely been un-wrapped by the passage of the years. Ten Commando was composed entirely of men who came from Germany and from Nazi-occupied countries such as Holland, Poland, and France. Secrecy was vital, for if an Axis agent infiltrated into Ten Commando he could do untold harm. If a member of Ten Commando was captured and his unit identified, the rules of the Geneva Convention were unlikely to worry the captors. This overwhelming need for absolute secrecy was so well instilled in the men of Ten Commando that, until now, little was known about their daring exploits behind enemy lines, including co-ordination of resistance fighters and sabotage. The result of Ian Dear's painstaking research is a remarkable book indeed and a worthy tribute to an incredibly brave group of clandestine soldiers who belong near the top of the WWII Roll of Honor. AUTHOR: Ian Dear served as a regular officer in the Royal Marines between 1953 and 1957 and saw active service in Cyprus. After a career in firm publicity and in book publishing, he became a full-time writer specializing in military and maritime subjects. He is the author, editor, or compiler of fourteen books. SELLING POINTS: -No book has ever been written covering Ten Commando, one of the strangest units in WWII -Remarkable book indeed and a worthy tribute to an incredibly brave group of clandestine soldiers who belong near the top of the WWII Roll of Honor *
