Book Description Pen & Sword Atlas, 2014. Book Condition: New. From the German use of paratroopers on Crete (convincing the British and Americans to form their own airborne units) to the Chindits of the Burmese jungle and the Partisans of Yugoslavia, special units and clandestine tactics were a key feature of the Second World War. This analysis uses over 100 colour maps to describe some of the major operations ranging from daring raids, such as the Dam Busters bomber attacks, to large-scale special-forces assaults such as Operation Market Garden.
