Royal Marines Commandos by John Parker
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Royal Marines were originally formed under the auspices of the Royal Navy to guard its sailing ships from harm. They are proud of their history and origins but the Navy heritage is fading. John Parker's new book charts how the units have moved away from their nautical beginnings to develop, over time, into the most versatile force in the British military, containing one of their most elite brigades.The Royal Marines Commandos have over the past few years developed into the premier fighting organisation on land, sea and air. Lavished with some fabulous equipment, they are trained to the highest degree in a diverse range of skills and officer quality is generally recognised as of the highest order. This history deals with events associated with the Royal Marines and subsequently in their commando role, starring in all of the major conflicts in which the UK became embroiled, including Italy, Malaysia, Cyprus, the Borneo confrontation with Indonesia, and more recently Afghanistan.
