The Black Prince and the Sea Devils: The Story of Prince Valerio Borghese and the Elite Commandos of the Decimaby Jack Greene Alessandro Massignani
Greene and Massignani's workmanlike account of the military career of Prince Valerio Borghese shows how the covert tactics adopted by Borghese's Decima MAS naval unit of World War II are the blueprint for special forces around the world to this day. The Italian nobleman assembled the first modern naval commando squad, whose frogmen were trained to fight undercover and underwater with small submarines and assault boats armed with torpedoes. After Italy's capitulation in 1943, Borghese continued to fight as a fascist commando leader; he died in 1974 as a man of mystery, rumored to be involved in a number of right-wing conspiracies, abortive coups, and other clandestine activity. With eight glossy pages of b&w photos. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc. , Portland, OR (booknews. com)
