The 'Devil's Brigade' was the name given to US/Canadian special forces in World War II, who saw action in the Aleutian Islands, Italy and the south of France. This account was co-written by a brigade veteran and includes profiles of many of his comrades in this famously rugged unit.
The first special service forces of World War II were known as the Devil's Brigade. Ferocious and stealthy combatants, they garnered their moniker from the captured diary of a German officer who wrote, "The black devils are all around us every time we come into line and we never hear them." Handpicked U.S. and Canadian soldiers trained in mountaineering, airborne, and close-combat skills, they numbered more than 2,300 and saw action in the Aleutians, Italy, and the south of France.
