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'.
