Description: (Osprey, Oxford, 2001), Ist edition.. 96 pp, large 8vo (9 3/4" H), soft cover. Profusely illustrated in b&w and color with photos, maps, battle plans, drawings. "The raid on the port of St Naziare in March 1942 by a sea-borne task force from British Combined Operations, remains one of the most daring actions of the Second World War. The port lies at the mouth of the River Loire and in 1942, as well as a U-boat base, contained the massive 'Normandie' dock, the only facility on the Atlantic coast large enough to accommodate the German battleship 'Tirpitz'. This book tells the story of the raid on St Nazaire that denied the use of the dock to the 'Tirpitz', the sister ship of the 'Bismarck', and constituted a crucial victory in the Battle of the Atlantic." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - clean and bright, flat uncreased spine. Fine.
