British and American commanders first used modern special forces in support of conventional military operations during World War II. This book offers a comprehensive study of the development, application, and value of Anglo-American commando and special forces units during WWII.

This book describes tactics and operations and outlines the distinctions between commandos and special forces, traces their evolution during the war, explains how the Anglo-American alliance functioned in the creation and use of these units, looks at their command and control arrangements, evaluates their impact, and assesses their cost-effectiveness.
