Commando: Winning World War II Behind Enemy Lines | [James Owen]

Commando: Winning World War II Behind Enemy Lines

June 1940: As Britain's soldiers limped home from Dunkirk, a maverick Army officer was already devising a bold plan to hit back at the enemy. His idea was to revolutionise military thinking and change the face of warfare forever. Relying as much on stealth and guile as on courage and stamina, the Commandos brought to the battlefield the skills of the guerrilla. Trained by an unconventional band of experts, and led by a big-game hunter, a film star, a Highland chief and an eccentric wielding a bow and arrow, they became the spearhead of the Allied drive for victory.

His idea was to revolutionise military thinking and change the face of warfare forever. Relying as much on stealth and guile as on courage and stamina, the Commandos brought to the battlefield the skills of the guerrilla. Trained by an unconventional band of experts, and led by a big-game hunter, a film star, a Highland chief and an eccentric wielding a bow and arrow, they became the spearhead of the Allied drive for victory. Weaving together official documents, new research, and veterans' own accounts, Commando reveals for the first time the exhilarating full story of WWII's most formidable fighting force.

    "I could only entre comments if I put one star down"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    After the first couple of chapters I was very excited to get into this book. What a shame I will never finish it.


    What was most disappointing about James Owen’s story?

    The author decided to disrespect the Australian troops. From this I could only ascertain that all the research would be invalid.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Can I get my money back?

    "Book good, but audio recording - oh dear"

    It's a good book let down by a poor audio recording. Or more precisely, let down by the very strange and even confusing mis-pronunciations that feature very heavily in the recording. Some are just bizarre, but some also undermine the meaning, most particularly the way Boulogne (in France) is pronounced as Bologna (in Italy). Unless you already know otherwise, that makes for some very confusing sections,
