The definitive and thrilling history of those who wore the famous green beret.

COMMANDO is the definitive history of the units raised to answer Winston Churchill’s call to arms: ‘Enterprises much be prepared with specially trained troops of the hunter class, who can develop a reign of terror.’ These units and their courageous operations would take many forms, including the spectacular assaults of the Small Scale Raiding Force, No. 30 Commando’s shadowy intelligence-gathering, and the highly secret missions of ‘X’ Troop.

Acclaimed military historian Charles Messenger follows these elite forces from the snowy wastes of Norway to the jungles of South-East Asia, from North Africa and Operation Torch to the Normandy beaches and Operation Overlord. The result, based on extensive research as well as interviews and correspondence with former Commandos, is the true and thrilling story of those who wore the famous green beret.
