Here is the complete story of the original special forces team, the legendary British Commandos.
They set the standard for every tactical military unit that followed. They even gave their signature uniform detail--a green beret--to one of the squads they inspired. The British Commandos were the original special forces team, formed at the request of Winston Churchill during the early years of World War II.
SUICIDE MISSIONS tells the complete story, showcasing rare footage of early wartime raids, meeting with past and present soldiers--including some of the survivors of the very first Commandos squads--and visiting their training facility at Exmouth, England, where contemporary Commandos prepare for peacetime duties. THE COMMANDOS also brings to life their most famous engagements and encounters, including the legendary use of the "exploding Trojan horse" at St. Naziare, France.
Authoritative, illuminating and action-packed, this video is a must-have addition the library of any military buff.
