More About the Author

Ken Ford was born in Eastleigh, Hampshire, England a long time ago. He left North End Secondary School in 1960 (I told you he was old). After three years in the Physics Department of Southampton University, he left to 'bum' his way around Europe ('bum' in this case meaning 'to drop out and live on the road'). He then became a telecommunications engineer in Southampton (to support his lovely wife Valda and daughters Amanda and Joanne) and spent 29 years at the pointed end until, in 1992, he became disillusioned with working for a living and opened a bookshop in Romsey, Hampshire. He also wrote books. He now lives in Southampton, drinks red wine (in moderation), annoys his three grandchildren Katelyn, Adam and Joseph and continues to write books (32 to date). Oh, and he also supports Southampton FC from his seat in the stands. That's about all there is to know about him.

Format: Paperback
Why does Osprey not make this sort of book anymore?
Fast paced and exciting like one should expect for this price.
Still too expensive!

Value for money will be found in the book "Operation Chariot: The Raid on St. Nazaire (Elite Forces Operations Series)" by Jon Cooksey.
It's actually better than the Osprey book on the subject.

Format: Paperback
I found this book to give the full details of the COmmando raid on St Nazaire, without loosing the reader in the detail. The information given by the writer is precise without being OTT. A very exciting history, of a tragic raid. The text describes the Port of St Nazaire in detail, and along with the pictures you can get a good idea of how the reaid was intended and the way it did actuallly turn out. The author gives the names of the Commando parties through the text, allowing for further research to be done if need be. A good book, with loads of detail.
