France’s Naval Commandos (or Commandos Marine in French) are a unit of Special Forces that operate under the Naval Rifle and Special Forces Command as well as the Special Operations Command. They have bases across the country, but mainly in the Northern (Brittany) area. Officially active since 1947, the Naval Commandos can trace their lineage back to World War II, when the famous Phillipe Kieffer modeled a unit of Free French navy volunteers upon the British commandos. Kieffer led these men ashore on June 6, 1944 as part of the D-Day operation and assaulted the resort town of Ouistreham. This action remains their most famous battle.
