Eric Micheletti's Warriors From The Deep: The Extraordinary History Of The Combat Swimmers profiles three combat swimmer units: the Italian Arditi Incursori, the descendants of the 'torpedo men', the German Kampfschwimmer, and the French combat swimmers who fought in Indonesia and Algeria. These swimmers have kept alive the skills needed to carry out underwater military operations, from espionage to attacks such as fitting explosive charges to the hulls of enemy ships: chapters take a visual approach to the history in packing color photos in multiples on every page, along with color illustrations of weaponry, discussions of tactics and achievements, and history.
Missions, military might, and courage Mar 13, 2006
Simply outstanding is Eric Michelett's WARRIORS FROM THE DEEP: THE EXTRAORDINARY HISTORY OF THE COMBAT SWIMMERS. Packed with full-page color photos and close-ups, the story of three combat swimmer units - the Italian Arditi Incursori, the German Kampfschwimmer, and the French combat swimmers who carried out operations from the 60s to modern times - receives in-depth detail and attention. Both methodology, individual and unit prowess and effectiveness, and surveys of main operations over the decades make for chapters which cover missions, military might, and courage. From the 'human torpedo' to underwater combats, combat swimmers play important roles during war which until now have rarely been covered in detail. WARRIORS FROM THE DEEP is a 'must' for any serious military collection: its scope and historical review is unparalleled.
