Created to make mayhem and sow fear in the hearts of those guarding the enemy shore, every man was a handpicked volunteer. In almost twenty daring missions to the rock-bound coasts of enemy occupied Brittany and Normandy, they kidnapped sentries, seized code books and ciphers, ransacked barracks and ambushed patrols. In doing so they wreaked havoc along the rim of Hitler’s Festung Europa. In almost forensic detail, Tom Keene tells their extraordinary story of courage and daring, patriotism and friendship." --Publisher description."@en ;
