“The GREATEST RAID Of ALL” By C. E. Lucas Phillips. Foreword by Mountbatten of Burma. They planned on everything except getting out alive. An old American destroyer was rebuilt on German lines, then crammed with explosives, her armed deck alive with fierce fighting men. She sailed from England’s Falmouth Harbor, bound for the coast of France. In the Royal Navy’s finest tradition they would fight their way into the fortified harbor of St. Nazaire to destroy the lair of the mighty German battleship, Tirpitz. If they failed, they would die. If they succeeded, Normandie Dock could be demolished. This is a true story of an impossible World War II mission! 1981 Bantam Paperback edition, 223 pages, with illustrations and maps, no photos or index.
