6 Foley, Charles Commando Extraordinary.
UK. Longmans,Green and CO. 1954 2nd Edition Hardcover Very Good Good Book 8vo - over 7 - 9 
In his fast moving account of Otto Skorzeny's missions the author establishes that the airborne privateer who rescued Mussolini laid the basis of his success on a study of British Commando operations. Disconcerting as it may be to learn how our own ideas were turned against us in the last war, an even sharper challenge to complacency comes with the evidence that such novel doctrines are today being adapted behind the Iron Curtain . There is a dedication in pencil on the f.e.p. The DJ shows fading on the spine and small tears and chips to the edges and corners.
