Most of our Landmarks books are reader copies only, and are usually less than the marked price. Collectors: please call or email if you're looking for specific editions or dust jackets!

The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent condition, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

During World War II the U.S. Navy produced a remarkable group of swimming warriors often called frogmen.

As volunteers for extra hazardous duty, these men carried out vital pre-invasion assignments in such major offensives as Saipan, Guam, Iwo Jima and Okinawa. They charted the approaches to enemy beaches and destroyed mines and other obstacles that could block the path of American landing craft.

In this book Wyatt Blassingame describes the daring World War II exploits of the Underwater Demolition Teams—the U.S. Navy frogmen.
