From Library Journal:

"Exercise Tiger" was a pre-invasion training mission to prepare U.S. soldiers and sailors for the Normandy landings in 1944. Ships were to ferry troops out into the English Channel and then simulate a landing on the south coast of England. Unfortunately, the ships were exposed to a night attack by German torpedo boats based on the French side of the Channel, and some 700 Americans perished. Lewis uses eyewitness accounts to flesh out his narrative of the exercise that turned into real battle. He also discusses the legends, lore, and controversy that have shrouded the event. The well-informed reader may be put off by some of the allegations and conclusions of the author, e.g., the "hidden" aspect of the tragedy, especially since Lewis quotes from a number of U.S. published sources. Still, this provocative account should be a popular addition to most collections.
