Bill Strutton's work "The Secret Invaders" (also published as "The Beachhead Spies") covers the formation and development of England's amphibious reconnaissance teams in World War II. Their task was to survey beaches prior to troop landings. The story of the training and operations of these underwater teams is both educational and interesting to see were some of today's modern naval warfare sprang from. I really think Special Operations Forces personnel will find this book especially interesting.

Thomas Greer, the former special operations commander who wrote a series of books under the pen name "Dalton Fury" and exposed the American public firsthand to the modern exploits of the military's most secretive units, died last week from cancer. Starting as an enlisted soldier and instructor in the elite Army Rangers in the mid-1980s before becoming an officer, Greer later joining . Army Special Forces Operational Detachment – Delta, more commonly known as "Delta Force," the Army's version of SEAL Team Six.

World War II. The heroic story of a desperate battle against the German Army

GREAT.

Overall not a blood-and-guts war novel. More of a daily life tale about a slew of odd characters thrown together on an island in the middle of World War 2. There's a bit of engineering marvel mixed with lots of alcohol in between skirmishes. Some of the stunts pulled, such as how they were able to find an X-ray machine for Dr. Rickett is thrilling in its sheer daring. If you're looking for a bullets-and-guts novel, this is probably not in your wheelhouse. If you're looking for a story with plenty of adventure and an eclectic mix of soldiers making do with what they have, this is a good one to try.

Commando Force 133 is an out of print history of the island of Vis in World War II and covers an altogether neglected aspect of the war. Notably we see an English medical officer jury rig a hospital out of next to nothing on the only remaining island not held by the Germans, and sub sequentially care for all the various forces that become injured as they battle the Germans on the mainland. These forces include English commandos, Yugoslav partisans and American and Australian pilots that use the island as an emergency landing strip. I couldn't help but be fascinated by the convergence of so many forces and, honestly, reading about an aspect of WWII that is not focused on America and/or combat.

What makes this book stand out is that the main character, if there is one, is an English MO sent to the island under the pretense that there would be heavy fighting and no escape. The MO had little to nothing to work with under battle conditions and had to constantly battle with the communist partisans as they struggled to maintain their forces in defiance of Germany. But we don't follow the combat too often and instead follow the injuries and casualties on the island and on the mainland raids that the commandos and partisans made on the Germans. We read about the atrocities that were committed by the Germans on the Jugs, as the Yugoslavs were referred to, and equally on the atrocities of the Jugs on the Germans as either side didn't hesitate to out right maim and kill one another. Equally appalling was the treatment of the partisans by their "higher" ups. One example is the two women who were forced to dig their own graves before they were executed. Their crime? They became pregnant. The women were severely punished by death if they were caught having sex, or punished if they were thought to start up a relationship with another man, more so if the man were a foreigner.

In the end we get a well balanced and engaging look at life during World War II on Vis and come away with a more in depth look at the rigors of a medical officer in a combat situation. Ironically, with all the struggles to get his higher ups in the British Army to supply them and always failing, they were able to create a better system built on trust and spare parts than when the British showed up and set up a full combat hospital with all new equipment. Noteworthy characters and a believable and rich story, if you can find a copy of this book than I would recommend.

4 stars.
