I am into my military history and I wanted to find a book that gave me an insight into the Royal Marines. This book delivers more than that. I am very pleased with this. The book is written in an informative style and provides a very detailed account of the Marines.
Excellent! the account of the first Royal Marine Commandos and how they were trained was very accurate. My father was one of the first Royal Marine Commandos and did his training with these men before he took part in the Dieppe Raid in 1942. Imagine my surprise when I found a picture of him at a reunion in Taunton.
I purchased this book a week ago, and have found it an extremely enjoyable read. It is well written, and well researched. The information is accurate, and the photographs are from personal collections which you won't find anywhere else.
