They were Britain's own World War II "Band of Brothers," a privately selected secret army of 50 cross-channel raiders who formed the elite Small Scale Raiding Force. Part SOE, part Combined Operations, their full story of courage, audacity, and ultimate tragedy has never been told before. Created after the fall of Dunkirk, the raiders were much admired, especially by Churchill. In almost 20 daring missions over two years they kidnapped sentries, ambushed patrols, and shot prisoners, reaping havoc along the rim of Hitler's Festung Europa. One night, they landed in a secret armed reconnaissance mission at what would become Omaha Beach and ran into a German patrol. With nowhere to hide but the sea, they were gunned down. Those left behind continued their extraordinary legacy, told here for the first time.
