about

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 Archery: the first true combined operation carried out by all three British forces. This successful raid persuaded Hitler that the Allies were planning a full scale invasion.

     Operation Biting: a cross-Channel raid into France that was the first major attack by the British Airborne Division and its first battle honour.

     Operation Gunnerside: a dramatic demolition assault on Hitler's atomic bomb plant in Norway.

     Operation Chariot: 'the greatest raid of all': the British amphibious attack on the Normandie dry dock at St Nazaire in German-occupied France.

     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.
