After five nights of paddling to get to Bordeaux, the men laid limpit mines on a series of German ships, sinking one and seriously damaging others. These men became the Cockleshell heroes, named after the ‘Cockle’ canoes they sailed in.But the story of the Cockleshells is more than that of these ten men, all but two of whom died in what was deemed an impossible mission. Over 4,000 canoes were made and the contribution they made to the war was immense, but has remained untold until now.In this new work, Quentin Rees, lucky owner of two of the Cockles, tells the story of the development and use of these ‘Most Secret’ weapons of war, the military canoe, from Combined Operations to SOE.This Kindle edition contains 150 black and white illustrations
