Book Description

25 Oct 2012

Six raids that changed the course of history.

Operation Judgement: one of the most spectacular efforts of World War Two, where obsolete British biplanes attacked the Italian fleet in Taranto.

Operation Archery: the first true combined operation carried out by all three British forces. THis successful raid persuaded Hitler that the Allies were planning a full scale invasion.

Operation Biting: a cross-Channel raid into France that was the first major attack by the British Airborne Division and its first battle honour.

Operation Gunnerside: a dramatic demolition assault on Hitler's atomic bomb plant in Norway.

Operation Chariot: 'the greatest raid of all': the British amphibious attack on the Normandie dry dock at St Nazaire in German-occupied France.

Operation Deadstick: the story of the first Allies into the fray on D-Day, tasked with seizing and holding two bridges to prevent an armoured German counter-attack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 10 May 2014
By Bob
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book detailing some of the great raids of World War 2. The saying goes: 'fortune favours the brave', these raids prove it's true.
I've read up on Operations Chariot and Deadstick in the past, I haven't even heard of some of the others in this book.
I now intend to remedy this, this book has whetted my appetite for some further reading.
I can thoroughly recommend this book.

I have already read all the books relating to the stories in Mr. Ross's book many years ago. It was a good condensed verson and reminded me in a couple of short chapters the events that took place by our brave soldiers during the war.
