One of the most dramatic war stories ever, recounted in brilliant style, with extraordinary "before" and "after" photos, maps, and diagrams. On April 23, 1918, British warships raided the Belgian port of Zeebrugge, hoping to stop German U-boats from using it as a base. The men, volunteers all, knew they were unlikely to survive--and they weren't wrong. This graphic page-turner honors the soldiers who died and pays full justice to a night of exceptional heroism.
