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.

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.

An amazingly detailed booklet about an amazing act of courage. Photos of (to me) otherwise difficult to find scenes. Brilliant detail and brilliant value
