Information
First UK edition, first print hardback of THE VOLUNTEERS by Douglas Reeman and published by Hutchinson & Co Publishers Limited, London in 1983. Signed by Reeman on the title page.

The book is in very good condition (Clean blue cloth boards with silver lettering on the spine) with only minor wear to the dust jacket, which is not price clipped (light bumping to corners). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions. There is some age spotting to top page edges.

Carrying out lightning raids on hostile coasts and shipping the Royal Navy's Special Operations unit became a navy within a navy, each of them hand-picked for individual skills, all of them courageous in their individual ways.

Nobody knew for certain if their small but deadly operations made a real impression on the conduct of the war, but they did their hazardous duty anyway, often living beyond hope, sometimes beyond mercy.

This is a story about a handful of such people, their fears and their loves, of the resilience and vulnerability of youth at war at the time of the Sicilian and Italian invasions in 1943 and of D-Day in 1944. Some of them fought an endless fight against fear and doubt, some of them rejoiced in the demands of combat, many did not survive.

Perhaps they had little in common except that they were all volunteers.

280 pages.
