116 Infantry Brigade Royal Marines, North West Europe 1945 By George Gelder.
The story of a unit that was never meant to exist in a role rarely given to Marines; holding the line. Desperately short of men the Army turned to the Admiralty for support and so 116 Bde RM came into being. With meticulous research in records dispersed across the UK and by interviews with the few remaining veterans, George Gelder has bought to life the story of these Blue Beret Marines who fought alongside their Commando and Army brethren in the final moments of the War.
