Format: Paperback
The Osprey Campaign book on St.Nazaire was not a bad number, but this book certainly overshadows it by far.
Great maps and fluid writing make you feel the authors interest in the subject.
Save your money on the Osprey get this one by all means!

Format: Paperback
Living near Falmouth, the departure point for operation Chariot, I was anxiously to read more about this operation which earned five of the participants VCs.

This book has excellent text and good maps and makes you wonder how men could carry on to their objectives given fierce enemy fire and the flimsy boats many of the commandos arrived in. It is clear reading this that the odds were firmly stacked against a safe return for many of the men involved: what heroes.

Next time I stand on the Prince of Wales pier near the plaques commemorating the recipients of the VCs I will understand something of what they achieved and went through.

This book stands as a worthy record of the operation; an excellent read.

Having recently visited St Nazaire on a battlefield tour looking at the role of commandos in World War two I wanted a book to look back on when I returned. Its an excellent book with lots of diagrams and photos explaining the layout of the dock and the way the operation happened. I particularly like the pen portraits and short biographies of individual servicemen who played important parts in the mission.
