Hitlers Secret Commandos is the history of the K-Verband naval commando unit, established in 1943 to reek havoc amongst invading allied forces involved in amphibious landings or actions, against German-occupied coasts.Following the Italian and British example, 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 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 the K-Verband.

It charts the development, structure, selection, training and equipment the Commandounit used together with a detailed narrative of the operations undertaken.The material has been translated from a German text, previously published in Germany with wide acclaim.
