Slipping into the weekend, I finished reading Osprey Warrior #141: Merrill’s Marauders, a book about a specially-trained unit of the US military that fought the Japanese in WWII. Along with descriptions of their equipment and training, there's a fairly detailed unit history including several of their important actions. Pretty solid read.

Specially trained? Last I heard it was an ordinary infantry battalion that got some working over by British commandos. A case of, "Special mission? Let's drop some of our rejects on them and see the results."

"Some working over by British commandos" counts as specially-trained.
