Tonight 2000 -2100 BBC 2 The greatest raid of all time


Book Reviewer
Jeremy Clarkson tells the story of what has been called the original Mission Impossible - the audacious commando raid on the German occupied dry dock at St Nazaire in France on March 28th 1942
Operation Chariot, as the raid was codenamed, had a simple aim: to destroy the dry dock and thus deny the German battleship Tirpitz a safe haven on the Atlantic coast of France.

Should be good Clarkson is normally quite enthusiastic about the war
He did a good documentry on Arnhem and his father in law who won a VC there
Just finished watching it. I have to say the men who did that deserve everything and anything they desire. The testimonies of the survivors and Clarkson's tales of the others were awe inspiring.

Top work by Clarkson and he appeared truly humbled for once.
