A real commando's story,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fighting with the Commandos (Hardcover)
The author relates his life story and especially his time in the commandos in WWII in an anecdotal style which makes it easy to pick up and browse through or to read at length. The author landed at Sword Beach during D-Day and came across many incidents but while speaking of these he does not glamourise the tragedy of war but relates them as ajob that had to be done. This shows what a true soldier he was. With several pages of photographs included, this is a book I would thoroughly recommend to all interested in history and to all who want a good read.
