Item description for ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ELITE FORCES IN THE SECOND WORLD WAR: Paratroops, Commandos, Rangers, Waffen SS by Michael E. Haskew...

World War II saw elite units take a prominent role on the battlefield for the first time. The Encyclopedia of Elite Forces in the Second World War is a wide-ranging guide to the excellent units on land, sea or in the air whose success was usually hard- won against the odds, and whose actions had an impact on the course of the fighting around them. The best units from both sides of the fighting are represented, as are the two main theatres of war.

Arranged by combatant nation, the book covers such famous units as the US Rangers, British SAS and German Waffen-SS, as well as some of the less well-known units like Popski's Private Army, the Long Range Desert Group and KG200.

Not all the units featured in the book were officially designated as elite forces - indeed, some of those involved were only ordinary soldiers -but they achieved elite status through their deeds.

Illustrated with black-and-white and color action photographs, The Encyclopedia of Elite Forces in the Second World War is a comprehensive guide to the elite forces of both sides during the 1939-45 war. Each entry describes the unit's strength, date of formation and gives a brief overview of its combat record during the war. Covering all aspects of warfare and both the European and Pacific theatres in World War II, the book will appeal to anyone with an interest in either World War II or elite units at war.

Reviews - What do customers think about ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ELITE FORCES IN THE SECOND WORLD WAR: Paratroops, Commandos, Rangers, Waffen SS?

'Elite' status is determined by performance, not just assigned status alone.  Aug 7, 2007
From paratroops and commandos to rangers, this A-Z reference to elite forces of the second world war is a top pick for any serious military collection looking beyond the general overview of troops and battles. The best units from all the major combatant countries are included from both European and Pacific theatres of war in a survey arranged by nation and covering troops and squadrons on all sides. 'Elite' status is determined by performance, not just assigned status alone.
