Comments From Other Readers

"With the precision and expertise of Special Forces for various countries, one might be surprised to learn that they did not really have a place until World War II. I know I was This was an interesting look at the history of these prestigious teams, including the Commandos, which were a brainchild of Winston Churchill." - Jonathan H. (Westminster, UK)

I appreciated that the author took the time to tell about missions like Operation Claymore and the raid on Makin Island. These two events helped to show the capability of the Commandos and Raiders." - Josh C. (Akron, USA)
