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!
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.
