    Jeremy Clarkson tells the story of one of the most daring operations of World War II - the Commando raid on the German occupied dry dock at St. Nazaire in France on 28th March 1942. It was an operation so heroic that it resulted in the award of five Victoria Crosses and 80 other decorations for gallantry.

I’ve got a new way. I do 5 mins on the exercise bike 4 times a day but in each 5 mins I go flat out until my legs hurt then slow down and recover then go flat out again. I go flat out about 5 times every 5 mins. It makes you puff and your heart race which is good for your brain I read. I do that 5 or 6 days a week. It works well and makes me feel a lot better.

Not taking away anything from these guys, but just saying they were one of many actions fought by people who believed in what they were doing and the people that you don't want coming at you are nearly always those that we don't regard as dangerous.....the free thinkers. I think it's because they realise that resorting to violence is a Pandora's box and so long as others don't open it, they won't either. If the other side do open it though, well the they are better emptying it, both on the battle field and creating new weapons. But any people who believe in what they are doing and are fighting with their back's to the wall fighting for their homeland are more prepared to fight and die as long as those actions can have a potential heavier impact on their aggressors. A couple of examples would be the Russians at Stalingrad, the Battle of Britain, the Aussies at Kokoda, the Vietnam War.

I've always said the Brits wrote the book on commando operations and counter intelligence. The commandos had brass balls and all other armies that formed special forces after them had some mighty big boots to fill to even come close to the Brits. They are definitely a force to be reckoned with and I'm sure the Germans were shocked after this raid.

The German Major in charge of the bunker told his side of the story. The commandos got in but they went down into the basement and hid. Later they came out and to their surprise, the commandos had left an explosive charge next to their 3 day supply of ammo. But it did not go off. If that would have gone off, no more bunker.
