'Commando', the history of small-scale raids during World War II, is a gripping narrative, tracing the actions of the fearless men who served as Allied commandos for the Combined Operations department during the war. Kenneth Macksey offers the details of St Nazaire, Bruneval and Dieppe as well as the key players, such as Stirling, Lovat and Carlson. Macksey also skillfully provides a study of the lesser-known figures, such as Edson, Appleyard and Pickney, bringing to life their courage and determination while celebrating the sailors who enabled the raiders to reach their destinations.

Macksey begins with a study of the formation of the commando units, their training, their weapons and the formative raids, as well as looking at how they worked with their Allied counterparts, such as the Canadians, Norwegians and US Marines and Ranger Battalions. 'Commando' offers a superb study of the contribution to the Allied victory that these special units provided.
