Book Description London 1973, White Lion, UK reprint, hard bound in dust jacket, VG/VG ( dj price clipped), 5 1/2 x 8 1/4, , 288 pages, illus, maps. ---------------------------------------------In March 1942 a fleet of wooden motor launches and an ancient destroyer carrying 611 men, most of them commandos, slipped out of Falmouth harbor into the English Channel. They were bound for the Loire estuary, a thin track of water between two coasts bristling with German guns. They feigned the formation of a mine-laying operation, and even before they reached their destination they encountered two German patrol boats, a French fishing fleet, and a German submarine. This was the beginning of the greatest raid of all, one of the most daring enterprises of World War II.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------The commandos' job was to blow up the largest dry dock in the world the Normandie Dock in St. Nazaire harbor. It was vitally important because it was the only dock which could accommodate the Tirpitz, the biggest battleship in the German fleet and the greatest single threat to Allied shipping since the sinking of the Bismarck. The plan was to ram the old destroyer, filled with delayed-action explosives, into the dock gates and then to disembark the commandos to blow up the dock machinery.C. E. Lucas Phillips' The Greatest Raid of All is only partly an account of the actual attack. It is also the remarkable tale of the painstaking preparation necessary for such an operation. Complete information about the objectives was compiled from every conceivable source. The men were trained to carry out in the dark and under enemy fire the destruction of dock machinery they had never seen. Each learned to perform all the most essential parts of the operation in case of casualties. Secrecy was maintained in all the different branches of the service which took part in the action, and a bluff was planned so that the fleet could approach the enemy's shore without being blown out of the water by his powerful coastal batteries.----------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------The Greatest Raid of All is also the story of the men who fought at St. Nazaire and of the magnificent spirit which induced them to join a raid from which they knew the chances of escape were slim.The author has done a remarkable job of reconstructing a brilliant but little-known wartime action. He has been able to trace every individual unit and has found out what happened to its men during and after the raid. He has consulted the War Diaries and the files of Combined Operations, and has received the assistance of Admiral of the Fleet Earl Mountbatten and of many of the leaders in the expedition.
