Jeremy Clarkson: Greatest Raid of All Time

Jeremy Clarkson tells the story of what has been called 'the original Mission Impossible' – the audacious commando raid on the German occupied dry dock at St Nazaire in France on March 28th 1942. Operation Chariot, as the raid was codenamed, had a simple aim: to destroy the dry dock and thus deny the German battleship Tirpitz a safe haven on the Atlantic coast of France.
