3.0 out of 5 stars
The Cockleshell Heroes, 14 April 2005
A truly realistic wartime drama. Based upon a true story of men sent out in canoes, dropped at night from submarines, to sink enemy shipping by placing limpet mines on the ships hulls in enemy ports. A fascinating film that l watched as a boy when the film first came out over 40 years ago and it hasn't lost it's edge.Wonderfull acting, made when the 2nd world war was still fresh in the minds of the scriptwriters and directors.
