about this item

The Royal Naval Commandos had one of the most dangerous and important tasks of any unit in World War II – they were first onto the invasion beaches and they were the last to leave.

The Commandos remarkable story – from their early formation and their training to the invasions they spearheaded – is told through a series of brilliantly linked anecdotes. Each tale is one of extraordinary courage and should ensure the legacy of the Commandos is not forgotten.

Beachhead Assault includes a Foreword by Man and Boy author Tony Parsons, whose father was a Royal Naval Commando who fought at Elba. It also contains a preface by Ken Oakley, Chairman of the Royal Naval Commando Association.


‘Every page of Beachhead Assault has a tale of almost suicidal courage.’
Tony Parsons, author of Man and Boy

‘Each tale leaves you gasping at the almost nonchalant, offhand accounts of extraordinary courage and dangers . . . This is a page-turner of a book.’
Journal of Naval Engineering

‘Compelling reading . . . David Lee clearly and rightly admires these wonderful men and their deeds.’ Colonel Mark Noble in Naval Review
