description -

A fascinating story of the World War II commandos and their efforts across Southern Europe and the Middle East, including their assault on Southern Italy, the Dieppe Raid, and the invasion of North Africa, with a foreword by Lord Mountbatten. A prominent chronicler of the Second World War, Hilary St. George Saunders also served as a recorder on Admiral Mountbatten's staff during the war. Saunders was also peripherally involved in government, serving with the League of Nations for many years and also acting as librarian to the House of Commons. With 32 pages of photographic illustrations--largely depicting field operations--and numerous in-text maps, the world offers a fascinating and complete view of the crucial role that commandos and combined operations played in World War II, particularly across the vast occupied coastlines of Europe.
