Today’s smaller armies, especially those of developing nations, demand maximum efficiency in force structure and deployment. Mountain, jungle, arctic and desert areas require special purpose units trained, conditioned, and equipped to master these environments. This book by an ex-weapons specialist in the US Special Forces, details the insignia of a number of these special forces groups, from Portugal’s Commando Regiment to the North Yemen ‘Al Mithalaat’ Brigade, with a wealth of illustrations and photographs, including 12 full page colour plates.
