    The Second World War saw elite units, such as the British SAS, US Rangers and Japanese Kamikaze Squadrons, take a prominent role on the battlefield for the first time. Arranged by nation, the Encyclopedia covers all the famous units, less well-known groups such as Popski's Private Army and the Long Range Desert Group, and ordinary forces distinguished by special missions such as 617 Squadron 'Dambusters', describing each unit's strength and giving a brief overview of its combat record during the War.
