    Paperback ☆ Zeebrugge Epub Ø zeebrugge book, Zeebrugge MOBIThis is the story of a desperate and heroic venture by the British in the last months of WWIa raid on the Belgian port of Zeebruge where German U boats and destroyers were sheltering and making lightning strikes against the British Navy and merchant shipping The objective was to sink blockships in the mouth of the port thus sealing off access to the Channel The British crew were all volunteers and were well aware that they might not return from this mission The author has well researched all aspects of the operation and the men who took part in this heroic failure Although the blockships were put in place the Germans removed them and continued business as usual But like Dunkirk in WWII defeat was turned to victory as the raid restored the flagging morale of the Brit

    Paperback ☆ Zeebrugge Epub Ø zeebrugge book, Zeebrugge MOBIVery InterestingI was intrigued by what went into the planning and preparation for these raids and humbled by the gallantry and bravery of the men involved Found the language a bit difficult keep up with and a couple maps showing the geographical layout and movement of combatant units would have been helpful

    Paperback ☆ Zeebrugge Epub Ø zeebrugge book, Zeebrugge MOBIIt's a great story but this book is now a bit dated first published in 1958 It winds up hinting at a German version of the raid that is at odds with what you just read in the book It would be great

    Paperback ☆ Zeebrugge Epub Ø zeebrugge book, Zeebrugge MOBIThis is a well written entertaining account of a British naval raid late in the First World War to destroy the ability of U Boats to enter the sea from their base It is an exciting adventure story worthy of an Alistair Maclean novel There are maps and charts that help make this very complex operation easy to understand The author even adds the occasional bit of dry English witThe one problem I have with the book is most likely the result of the the time which it was written; 1958 Every commander and sailor who participated in this action is portrayed as a suared jawed embodiment of British manhood Each man is shown to be aching with joy to rush forward on what was assumed to be a suicide mission If a ship broke down on the way to the raid the crew are described as brokenhearted everyone eager to race into the cannon's mouth This raid takes place after almost 4 years
