Combat Frogmen: Military Diving from the Nineteenth Century to the Present Day - WELHAM, Michael G.

Patrick Stephens, 1989, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good+ - in Very Good+ DJ.

Dangerous, clandestine, shadowy. This is the world of combat frogmen, below the surface of rivers, lakes, estuaries, dock areas and seas. The men chosen to operate under water represent the elite of their nations' fighting forces: the Royal Marines' Special Boat Squadron, the Special Air Service Boat Troops, the US Seals and Green Berets, the French Fusiliers Marins, and the Soviet Spetsnaz. It investigates their selection and training, and gives graphic accounts of actual operations, looking also at the development of their specialist equipment, some of which could come straight from the pages of science fiction. Illustrated. Illustrated / decorative end papers.
