Synopsis: 1st edition 1st print Sutton 2005 hardcover fine book in fine dw In stock shipped from our UK warehouse

Synopsis: Norwegian investigative journalist Alf Jacobsen relates one of the most incredible tales of the Second World War, in which Royal Navy X-craft midget submarines attacked the German battleship Tirpitz in Norway. A daring plan was hatched by the Admiralty to sink Tirpitz using midget submarines to plant high explosive mines beneath the ship's keel. On 22 September 1943, six X-craft midget submarines set out from Scotland to sink the battleship at anchor in Norway. Three never reached the fjord and X5, commanded by Lt Henty-Creer, was presumed sunk by the Germans, so only X6 and X7 made the attack. Both Lt Donald Cameron in X6 and Lt Godfrey Place in X7 placed their charges successfully, but were forced to surrender. Both were awarded the Victoria Cross. Although Tirpitz was not sunk she was put out of action until April 1944. Lt Henty-Creer, the commander of X5, and his crew were never seen again. Neither he nor any of his crew received any posthumous gallantry awards. Did X5 actually penetrate the anti-submarine defences around Tirpitz and lay its explosive charges beneath the battleship? If it did, then Henty-Creer and his crew deserve to be honoured for their bravery.

Book Description Sutton Publishing, UK., 2006. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Award winning journalist Alf Jacobsen relates one of the most incredible tales of the Second World War, when Royal Navy X-craft midget submarines attacked the mighty German battleship Turpitz planting high explosives beneath the keel as it lay in the fjords of northern Norway. X5 and her crew were never heard of again, and were thought to have failed in their operation, but new evidence by Jacobsen may point to them actually succeeding in their mission. This book is a fascinating read in to one of the secret missions of World War Two. Seller Inventory # 02506
