'This exciting story of Britain's Commandos and their comrades-in-arms the American Rangers shows in detail how they developed amphibious raiding techniques in Europe, the Mediterranean and the Pacific.  The US Marine Corps Raider battalions' and other Special Forces' actions are also explained in their contribution to this unique form of warfare, with beach reconnaissances and sabotage raids leading to the formation of Commando and Ranger forces to spearhead invasions.'
