Of the many special forces set up after 1940 to 'set Europe ablaze', in Churchill's phrase, were units that have since become household names, such as the Parachute Regiment and the SAS, but others that, having had brief and covert existences, are little known today. This well-illustrated book, aimed at the militaria collector, sets in context the growth and development of Allied Special Forces during the Second World War and provides a guide to the distinctive insignia that they wore.
