Naval Combat Demolition Units (NCDUs) & Underwater Demolition Teams (UDTs), little-known predecessors of the Navy SEALs, played a crucial role during WW2. Before amphibious assaults, they were tasked with beach reconnaissance, depth sounding, & clearing obstacles, mines, & unexploded ordnance so the troops could land. This book is based on painstaking archival research & interviews with veterans of the NCDUs & the UDTs, plus the people who influenced their development -- the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers & the Amphibious Scouts & Raiders, among others. O’Dell details the historical precedents that influenced the teams, as well as their innovation & experimentation with tactics, methods, & equipment. Photos.
