Part SOE, part Combined Operations, their full story of courage, audacity, and ultimate tragedy has never been told before. Created after the fall of Dunkirk, the raiders were much admired, especially by Churchill. In almost 20 daring missions over two years they kidnapped sentries, ambushed patrols, and shot prisoners, reaping havoc along the rim of Hitlers Festung Europa. One night, they landed in a secret armed reconnaissance mission at what would become Omaha Beach and ran into a German patrol. With nowhere to hide but the sea, they were gunned down. Those left behind continued their extraordinary legacy, told here for the first time.
