    1. "A Perfect Hell" is a well written book detailing the creation of the First Special Service Force in World War II. As part of the lineage of modern day Special Forces, this unit is fascinating. The book begins with a detailed description of the creation of a hybrid U.S. and Canadian force specialized in arctic warfare during an especially bleak period of the war. It then details their brutal training and the period when the unit was caught in limbo. The baptism by fire of the unit was in fierce [...]

    2. My Remembrance Day tradition is to read a book about the military or military service, including UN missions as well as viewpoints of civilians in wartime situations.A Perfect Hell is a fantastic non-fiction account of the combined WWII Canadian and US unit that was one of the first dedicated special ops or 'commando' units in the world; the First Special Service Force. These were the men on whom the movie 'The Devil's Brigade' was based; only they were real people This book covers not only thei [...]

    3. Excellent account of WII Special ForcesI didn't know this outfit existed, as the author said, once it was disbanded, it was forgotten; overshadowed by D-Day. In fact I really haven't read too much on the Italian Campaign at all. But I read of a local (Washington, IN) veteran who was part of the FSSF unit. His daughter was going to DC to accept an honor being presented to the unit. That piqued my interest. Good read about WWII.

    4. Not the movieInstead realitya tough read in many ways, but not because of the writing. Hell captures it, but the honest often comes through that way. Excellent read if you are interested in the history of those awesome WW II soldiers who opened the door to Rome in every sense of the word, the 'Black Devils'. I raise my glass to them and to Nadler for putting it into print. Well done!

    5. If WW11 history is your thing, this is an enjoyable and very informative read. John Nadler has really brought the history of the American/Canadian commandos to life. Its also a real compliment to the Canadians who fought in this war.

    6. 11/2/08 Uggh. This is a somewhat painful read. It is more a list of events than a story. I'd recommend only for the hardcore. In retrospect, I garnered most everything of interest from reading the title.
