Description
One of the original volunteers for No. 4 Commando, James Dunning chronicles this elite wartime special service unit, from its formation in 1940 to its disbandment five years later at the end of World War II. Dunning explains how 500 volunteers, despite initial problems, prejudices, and frustrations, developed into the "Fighting Fourth," and describes the extraordinarily tough and unorthodox training they undertook (Dunning himself became an instructor at the Commando Training Centre in Achnacarry, Scotland). His illustrated history includes gripping accounts of No. 4's actions in the Lofoten and Dieppe raids in 1941 and 1942, the protracted involvement on D-Day, and the storming and capture of the vital port of Flushing in November 1944.
