The Force: The Legendary Special Ops Unit And WWII's Mission Impossible
by Saul David
- Air, Ground, & Naval Warfare, World War II
Before the Green Berets, there was The Force
In December of 1943, as Nazi forces sprawled around the world, a group of highly trained U.S. and Canadian soldiers from humble backgrounds was asked to do the impossible: capture a crucial Nazi stronghold perched atop stunningly steep cliffs.
Brought together by the promise to take part in the military's most elite missions, they formed a unique brotherhood tested first by the crucible of state-of-the-art training--including skiing, rock climbing, and parachuting--and then tragically by the vicious fighting they would face.
Drawing on interviews with surviving members and their families, memoirs, letters, diaries of Forcemen, and declassified documents, The Force tells a story that is as deeply personal as it is inspiring.
