The Making of a Royal Marine Commando by Nigel Foster

The Making of a Royal Marine
Commando by Nigel Foster
An insider account of life with the Corps widely considered to consist of
the best trained and most effective troops in the world. Nigel Foster, a
former Young Officer spoke to the Marines themselves. He tells of life in the
Royal Marines from the point of view of a young officer and a recruit,
following them through training, their first posting to a fighting company
and then to their specialist qualification. He aims to reveal what life in the
Royal Marines is really like; from mounting guard at Buckingham Palace to
living for weeks on end at -40 degrees Fahrenheit; from mounting
anti-smuggling patrols in Hong Kong to patrolling in Northern Ireland. He
considers such questions as what type of person becomes a Royal Marine
commando and what qualities the Royal Marines are looking for, as well as
discussing Prince Edward’s decision to join and ultimately reject the
Marines. This new edition includes material on the Gulf conflict and the Marines’
role in Operation Safe Haven in Kurdistan.
