Ian Allan Publishing UK 1st edition 2003. Card cover small 4to 96pp b&w and colour photos. A little wear on edges else very good+. This series looks at the cutting edge of war, units capable of operating completely independently in the forefront of battle. Covers origins and history; organisation, order of battle and how this changed; battle history; insignia and markings; and biogs of the top people and personalities. The Commandos were formed in summer 1940 and their first raid was on the Lofoten Islands on 4 March 1941.Later, the attack on Vaagso showed how effective Commandos could be, destroying a german garrison, taking 102 prisoners, blowing up a coastal defence battery and destroying 18,000 tons of shipping at a cost of 20 killed.Amphibious raids pointed up to the need for better intelligence and control on the beaches, so the RN Commandos were formed.They took part in all the main amphibious operations from then on - including Dieppe, Torch, Husky, Monte Cristo and Pantelleria, Salerno and Anzio, Elba, Arakan, Overlord, Walcheren and crossing the Rhine. Elsewhere, Commandos performed with great glory in the Desert War and in the Middle East.
