Stock code: 42207
8vo., First Edition, with frontispiece, 35 plates on 22, 3 illustrations (one double-page and 2 full-page) and 4 maps (one double-page and 3 full-page) in the text, and front and rear endpaper maps; green cloth, backstrip lettered in red, a very good, bright, clean copy in price-clipped dustwrapper, the latter a little frayed and creased at edges.
The best popular account of a small but daring section of the Royal Navy which operated with considerable success in almost every theatre of war throughout WWII (perhaps most famously in the attack on Tirpitz). The basis of Ralph Thomas's feature film of the same name (1955) starring John Mills, John Gregson and Donald Sinden. The US edition is titled 'The Midget Raiders'. Increasingly elusive in anything like this condition. Enser, p.419; Law, 0929; Mulholland & Jordan, W20.
