Book Review: The Atlas of Special Operations of World War Two


Essential reading for anyone interested in Special Operations. The book is very nicely produced with colour through the body of the book. There are maps as the title suggests, but there are also well-chosen photographs to support each operation’s section. The scope includes a wide range of special operations, and not just commando style raiding. The book feels really comprehensive but the author makes no claims to having covered every operation, rather he has selected a range of example operations.

The author has comprehensively covered the global nature of special operations in WWII and the 
book deserves great success in providing global scope of special operations.
