Clarkson on the St. Nazaire Raid

St. Nazaire Raid memorial

So I finally got around to watching Jeremy Clarkson‘s The Greatest Raid of All Time, which covers the World War II raid on the drydock at St. Nazaire by British commandos. I count this as yet another incredible story of the war which I had never heard of before–I’ve complained about this previously–but I usually figure that was the limits of my public school education. I feel a little better about this one that Clarkson didn’t know about it apparently, and it’s based out of his country.

Seriously, watch this. I know it’s an hour, but there’s a really good chance it will be the best thing you watch this weekend.
