Synopsis: This book covers special operations from all parts of the armed forces of World War Two. From Early Fallschirmjager raids to capture strategic targets to the massed airdrops of Operation Market Garden, the low level raids of the Dam Busters to small scale Commando raids along the Norwegian coast. The raids, carried out by select and specially trained men and women of the Allied and Axis forces, are covered from the deserts of North Africa and the Cold Balkan mountains to the deep jungle of Burma and the vast openness of the Pacific Ocean.

The book includes over 100 full color, detailed 2D and 3D maps to fully explain how these great acts of bravery were carried out.

About the Author: Alex Swanston has worked on over thirty historical titles, creating the cartography and layout and editing the pictures. He is also the author of The Historical Atlas of World War II and the Atlas of Air Warfare, which has been translated into seven different languages. He lives in the United Kingdom.
