The story of the Royal Naval Commandos in World War II. The RN Commandos had one of the most dangerous and important tasks of any unit in the war - they were first on to the invasion beaches and they were the last to leave. Under their officers, who were designated Beachmasters, the Royal Naval Commandos led the way in on the beaches as part of the Allied landings in Madagascar, Dieppe, North Africa, Pantelleria (Sicily), Salerno, the Volturno River, Anzio, Arakan, Normandy, Elba, Walcheren and Commachio. Their life-threatening work was crucial to the success of the Allied invasions. Based on first-hand accounts, "Beachhead Assault" follows the progress of the Commandos from their beginnings and training early in the war through to the operations they spearheaded. Here at last is a book which tells the story of a remarkable but little-known group of men, ensuring that their legacy will not be forgotten.
