Written by a Commando veteran of the Second World War, this is a remarkable, vivid and honest account of the battles and actions behind the thirty eight Battle Honours that were awarded to the Army Commandos by Her Majesty the Queen in 1958. Only operations deemed to be 'thoroughly outstanding feats of arms' were mentioned in the battle honours list. It therefore represents only a fraction of the raids and battles fought by the Commandos in their five years of active service. These Battle Honours are emblazoned on the Commando Flag that hangs in Westminster Abbey in London, almost opposite the tomb of the Unknown Warrior.The story of each honour is presented in the most direct way, using the first-hand experiences of the commandos, officers and men who actually took part in the fighting. 'There have been many histories of the commandos in the past, but this one is special, in a way, because it's been written by a commando, and refers to the memories and reminiscences of the men themselves, those whose glorious history is encompassed on the Commando flag in the Abbey. These first-hand accounts of the thirty-eight commando operations are poignant and inspiring.' Books Monthly
