The Small Scale Raiding Force
I've nearly finished Commando Tactics, which was very interesting and full of useful information, so now I'm about to start The Small Scale Raiding Force by Brian Lett. This should give me a slightly different angle on the whole Achtung Commando project.
The SSRF was one of the early variants of the commando concept but, as the name suggests, was dedicated to low level 'cloak and dagger' operations rather than full scale raids, primarily operating in the Channel Islands. These weren't always very successful but did help to develop the commando concept.
This would definitely lend itself to detailed squad level games and scenarios, perhaps using the Fivecore skirmish level system, which I'm going to investigate further following a suggestion for commando raiding rules on a TMP thread.
