HITLER'S SECRET COMMANDOS.  OPERATIONS OF THE K-VERBAND

Details

K-Verband was established in 1943 to wreak havoc amongst invading Allied forces involved in amphibious landings or actions against German occupied coasts. Based on the Italian and British examples the basic idea was for a small exceptionally well-trained and absolutely reliable commando force using the maximum element of surprise. Midget U-boats and small torpedo-carrying craft along the lines of the explosive U-boats used by the Italian Navy were designed for individual operations while a naval assault troop was formed for missions against important enemy operational targets near the sea after being landed from naval vessels offshore. Using German archive material first-hand accounts and other published material this is the first comprehensive history of this unit.
