9780099574774: Raiders: World War Two True Stories

To the people of Great Britain

World War II was the deadliest and bloodiest war in history. Never before or since have so many people made such a personal sacrifice in the line of duty.

Raiders tells the extraordinary true stories of six of the most daring special operations ever undertaken in warfare and the heroism of the people behind them.

Operation Chariot was the most ambitious amphibious raid ever mounted by the British Forces. Attacking the heavily fortified dry dock at St Nazaire in German occupied France, an elite group of commandos battered their way through a maelstrom of bullets and incendiaries. Their boat is punctured by over a hundred shell holes, the dead and wounded lie all around them on the decks, but still their guns are blazing and still they press on...

'Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality that guarantees all others'

Winston Churchill
