I served in Normandy in 1944 in First Commando Brigade --in which Peter Young commanded No 3 Army Commando, one of the
four Army and Royal Marines Commando units comprising the Brigade. He was widely admired and respected as a first-class
professional Army officer and pioneer Commando leader. This book presents a most interesting and highly readable account not
only of his Commando career (during which he was highly decorated) but also of his subsequent experiences with the Arab Legion
in Jordan. He later founded the Sealed Knot re-enactment society, devoted to the re-creation of English Civil War battles, for
which many members of the public also remember him. Bryan Samain (author of 'Commando Men')

A well written account of life as it was during the Second World War. More intimate detail of Commando training would have been appreciated,but a good read nonetheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost complete., 11 Sept. 2014

This review is from: Commando to Captain General: The Life of Brigadier Peter Young (Kindle Edition)
This is a fascinating and compelling account of an ambitious and capable man born to this country just at the time when it would need him the most.
I have titled this, "almost complete" because I believe there would be a lot more to tell but for modesty and probably some censorship.

I came into contact with Peter young as a young warmer and must admit to being in some awe of him. As such I enjoyed reading the book which gave me insight into the character. Had I known more about his wartime history I would have been truly in reverence.
