216 x 139mm

-- Exciting World War II action -- The exploits of Britain's wartime commandos -- Covers fighting in Norway, Italy, France, and GermanyJohn Durnford-Slater raised and trained the first Commando unit in 1940, became an outstanding leader of special operations, and witnessed some of the most daring exploits of World War II.3 Commando sprang into being in 1940 in order to harry Axis forces in pinprick raids that were impossible for regular army units, and took part in the raid on Dieppe and operations in Sicily and Italy, France, and, ultimately, Germany itself.The destruction wrought by the commandos was such that Hitler ordered all personnel captured in such raids executed. The commandos' spirit, however, remained undaunted and this is reflected in John Durnford-Slater's exciting and forthright memoirs. Now placed in context by David List's details of 3 Commando's operations, and David Buxton's notes on casualties and awards, this stirring book, long heralded as a classic, now makes its first appearance as a paperback.
