    The book re-tells the stories of six of Britain's WWII small scale operations, ones that although not huge in terms of number of soldiers or length of battle had considerably greater consequences that at first would be thought. The problem with the book is partly Mr Kemp's style (or perhaps that of his proof readers and editors), in particular the clunkiness at times and 'boys own' theme that pervades the book. BY and of themselves these can be overlooked. For me it was simply that the operations The book re-tells the stories of six of Britain's WWII small scale operations, ones that although not huge in terms of number of soldiers or length of battle had considerably greater consequences that at first would be thought. The problem with the book is partly Mr Kemp's style (or perhaps that of his proof readers and editors), in particular the clunkiness at times and 'boys own' theme that pervades the book. BY and of themselves these can be overlooked. For me it was simply that the operations described here have been described in other books and in both more detailed and better narrated style. If you have not read about the Taranto, Vaagso or Vermork operations you should get this book and read it, you will enjoy it. If you have read about them there is nothing in here that is new.
