Jeremy Clarkson tells the story of one of the most daring operations of World War II - the Commando raid on the German occupied dry dock at St. Nazaire in France on 28th March 1942. It was an operation so heroic that it resulted in the award of five Victoria Crosses and 80 other decorations for gallantry.

If there are words to describe my sincerest gratitude and awesome respect to these Brits that knowingly and unselfishly risked and or gave life and limb to secure freedoms for their country and all others I find there are not.

It's amazing how Jeremy can give this story and these men the reverence it deserves. Their ability to go on a suicide mission with cheer and pluck, and then for some to come out the other side

When I was a kid in the 1970s my next door neighbour, who seemed as old as the hills to me, was a very quiet and gentle man, years after his death we found out he was part of this raid and many others, he's eternally etched in my mind tending to his runner beans.

The German Major in charge of the bunker told his side of the story. The commandos got in but they went down into the basement and hid. Later they came out and to their surprise, the commandos had left an explosive charge next to their 3 day supply of ammo. But it did not go off. If that would have gone off, no more bunker.

Clarkson is damn brilliant. perfect narrator. he cares you can tell. thank you Jeremy. My Grandfather escorted the fleet to St Nazaire as Capt of Submarines. He was the bravest Man I ever knew. Dunkirk veteran too. But my Grandfather said those Commandos were all heroes. Good enough for me.

Its Memorial Day, 2021 and I have had all the very best of Martial values and valor validated to me. For those who have not served I'm sure these views and attitudes must seem like a kind of insanity and yet I feel much humbled by the story of so many who gave so much so selflessly. Eternal Rest grant unto them all, Oh Lord.

Hey buddy, shouldn't you be driving my dream car like I've had to see on your other show and literally made me nauseous for about 3 days? The 1998 Red Toyota Supra with the stock twin turbos replaced with a pretty large single Garrett turbo..She put down about 900 (conservative) Horse power, but simply open up the center console, turn the dial on the boost by gear, and she'll easily be making well over 1000 HP. And I'm talking about full traction control hooked up, VSC in order, and if you try to pull out onto the road in any other gear than 3rd, it'll be the equivalent of driving on ice. But nothing that a good pair of Mickey Thompson's couldn't handle. Detune her back down to about 600 HP, and you should be faster than everything, and yes....even the new ugly Corvette....yuk...Sorry about going off on that little tandem, But just to see you drive my dream car was really heartbreaking

Admittedly I haven't procured a degree in logistics. But; I really cannot fathom just how 600+ men managed to squeeze their immensely sized testicles into that estuary. Let alone manage to run or fight with them, after the initial raid. Amazing people.
