Overview
-

This is a story of a fighting force. In the words of the marines themselves, Robin Neillands, formerly of 45 Commando RM, describes what it is really like to wear the legendary green beret, in peace and in war. This vivid and authoritative account charts the story of the Royal Marine Commandos from their bloody baptism on the shell-swept beaches of Dieppe in 1942 to the final yomp into Stanley at the end of the Falklands War in 1982.

The forty years between cover the fighting in Yugoslavia, Burma, Western Europe and the D-Day landings. Here, too, are tales of conflicts in the dying days of the British Empire, in Palestine, Malaya, the Canal Zone at Suez, Aden, Cyprus, Borneo and Northern Ireland. Wherever there were campaigns to be waged or battles to be won, the Marines were there.
