"This compact book is recommended to those interested in special forces planning for expeditionary operations as well as those interested in a short history of the Army Commandos complete with tables of organization, equipment and the historically significant battle honours. As a handy reference for building an organization or a starting point for future in-depth reference, British Commandos: 1940-46 is highly recommended." --Lieutenant-Colonel Robert S Williams MSM CD, The Canadian Army Journal (Summer 2007)
