Award-winning television journalist Ross Kemp is back with Raiders: six tales of the most daring British operations of World War Two.
     Six raids that changed the course of history.

     Operation Judgement: one of the most spectacular efforts of World War Two, where obsolete British biplanes attacked the Italian fleet in Taranto.

     Operation Deadstick: the story of the first Allies into the fray on D-Day, tasked with seizing and holding two bridges to prevent an armoured German counter-attack.
