An absolute 'must-see'
24 February 2008 | by racwinsSee all my reviews

The most awe inspiring documentary covering the formation of the Commandos, the thought process behind this hardly known but incredible naval attack on St Nazaire to disable the largest Atlantic based dry dock during the Second World War and one which should be shown again on prime time BBC1.

The interviews with the ex-servicemen who carried out the attack and were subsequently held as prisoners of war stirred such incredible emotions. Churchill really should have been proud.

Congratulations to the the entire production team, director and presenter ... you truly re- created a fantastic overview of an amazing attack and created one of the best programmes I've ever seen.
