The Saint-Nazaire Raid, March 1942

An incredible story, and Clarkson tells it very well with the aid of interviews with some of the then surviving principal soldiers. I like the way Bill Watson says this, with an intake of breath:
"It made you feel that you could stand up to the test. I think that it was a relief to know that one didn't fall apart."
