Praise

“In his book on this raid, author Ken Ford looks at the development of the team and their equipment, the planning that went into the raid as well as the full story of the harrowing trip up river from the surviving crew and from German records of the interrogation of the captured crews.

Superbly illustrated with period photos and 3D Maps we are drawn into the story of these men and what they had to endure on this most hazardous mission. It is very much a gripping tale that I know you will thoroughly enjoy and as such I highly recommend this one to you.” -Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness / www.modelingmadness.com (April 2010)

“Remember that sophisticated British officer in the film Inglorius Basterds who joins Brad Pitt on the commando raid in France? Osprey Publishing’s new addition to their “Raid” series highlights the efforts of fourteen intrepid men just like that character (but they’re real).” – Ferrous Lands
