    DescriptionOne of the most prestigious and versatile units of the British armed forces, the Royal Marine Commandos served in many theatres worldwide, performing a number of conventional and specialised roles. During the period covered in this account, conscription to the Royal Marines came to an end and the unit became a professional and dedicated force, with a tough recruitment programme and a focus on teamwork. This book provides a detailed look at the service life of a Royal Marine Commando in a time of great change, exploring the developments that took place in recruitment, training, equipment, weaponry, dress and tactical deployment in the post-World War II period.

    "Overall a book that covers an often overlooked group of men, who have been able to perform quite well whenever called upon. A book I know you will enjoy reading." -Scott Van Aken, "www.modelingmadness.com "(August 2009)
