After spending much time in the Highlands around many of the locations that this book covers,the contents provide a facinating and humbling experience for the reader.

This book has given me an incite into what my late Father had to go through during his time in the training centre at Achnacarry, where he trained as a Commando in 1944.

It is not often that one reads a book that you cannot put down once started, but to me this is such a book.
Well written, well researched, and full of detail from those who were actually there and who undertook the incredibley hard training.

This book covers an area of Scotland and a period of history I have always wanted to join together. Commando Country achieved this and more.
A very informative book that covers the subject well and answered all the questions I had about the Commandos, the training area covered in the book and the individuals who were central to the subject.

I bought this as a present for someone who lives a stone's throw from the Commando Memorial at Spean Bridge and had to part with it before I had time to read it: I then received it as a Christmas present. This is a most interesting study of ordinary people training to do remarkable things in a beautiful (and highly individual) part of the world. Mr Allan manages to stick to the subject which is the area; what went on it; and what that training meant, when there must have been a huge temptation to write more about what the men and women who trained there did after completing their training. That is rightly the subject of many other books and this one adds its own weight to the overall subject.
