“I am not worried about the fighting. I know you’re fairly bloody-minded. But I want to speak of discipline during the battle.”
“You must get ashore, if you have to swim, and I hope some of you will return as you’ll be very useful for the next show.”
The words of a Commando officer to his men before they stormed the beaches of Sicily under heavy machine-gun fire sum up the swashbuckling, devil-may-care spirit of the toughest fighting men produced—the Commandos.
For their raids and battles far behind enemy lines in France, North Africa, Sicily, Italy and Burma the men in the Green Beret have become a legend.
This book shows how this legend was forged.
