The watery maze : the story of Combined Operations by Bernard Fergusson( Book )

20 editions published between 1951 and 1961 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During Britain's darkest hour, in 1940, extraordinary measures were necessary for survival. This bleak period of defense against the Axis led to the formation of Combined Operations, a semi-independent unit composed of admirals, generals, and air marshals. It became Britain's offensive team which, in the end, was instrumental in the successful invasions of North Africa, Sicily, and Normandy. Here is the complete story of the creation of that unit, beginning with a series of daring raids on the coasts of Norway, France, Africa, and Madagascar. These raids often resulted in great loss of life, but the lessons they taught the command led to dramatic successes. Combined Operations grew up with the war and played a part in the ultimate Allied victory in Europe and also in the Suez campain of 1956"--Taken from the book jacket flap

Bernard Fergusson was one of Orde Wingate's Column Commanders in the heroic but battered Chindit expedition behind Japanese lines in Burma in 1943. By 1944 Wingate had persuaded Churchill and Roosevelt that a bigger force, on the same unorthodox lines, could make a strategic difference. Aged 32, Fergusson returned to Burma as part of this, as a Brigadier, leading the only Brigade in the new force which entered Burma on foot. It was one of four Brigades which established well-defended strongholds within Japanese-occupied Burma. Fergusson also reflects candidly, and often humorously, on different aspects of the campaign. These include the ingenuity and sheer courage of the US Army Air Force pilots who flew in supplies and evacuated wounded. One glider pilot whom Fergusson saw making a particularly bad landing turned out to be Jackie Coogan, child star of Chaplin's The Kid, and later known as Uncle Fenster of the Addams Family. In apparently light hearted, but often profound sections, he analyses the management of a large and diverse force, up against physical extremes far from normal amenities and command structures; the importance of maintaining morale and of medical management; and, not least, an immediate portrait of Wingate himself, whose death at a crucial stage of the campaign - and the conflicting or at least confusing orders he left behind - directly affected Fergusson's men and the fate of the campaign. The Wild Green Earth follows the author's account of the 1943 campaign, Beyond the Chindwin. Both were written with the events, and reactions - even the smells - fresh in the author's mind, and vividly but sensitively conveyed. The excitement of the narrative remains today. And the reflections are timeless, fascinating for those with an interest in leadership and motivation as much as for readers of military history
