Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A: Little Brown & Co, 2006. First printing. A very fine, fresh copy in equally fine dust jacket.

The author reveals the colossal (and ofter under-reported) impact that the commando has had at key junctures in history, from the time of Alexander The Great to the bucaneering expolits of imperial expansion, Confederate saboteurs, World War II's ghostly infiltrators and assassins and 21st century covert units. First.
