Descripción

8vo., First Edition, with a frontispiece, 35 plates on 22, 3 illustrations (one double-page and 2 full-page) and 4 maps (one double-page and 3 full-page) in the text, and front and rear endpaper maps; cloth, backstrip lettered in red, backstrip lightly faded at head and tail else a very good, bright, clean copy in unclipped dustwrapper, the latter with minor loss (affecting lettering) at head and tail of backstrip. The best popular account of a small but daring section of the Royal Navy which operated with considerable success in almost every theatre of war throughout WWII (perhaps most famously in the attack on Tirpitz). The basis of Ralph Thomas's feature film of the same name (1955) starring John Mills, John Gregson and Donald Sinden. The US edition is titled 'The Midget Raiders'. Increasingly elusive in anything like this condition. Enser, p.419; Law, 0929; Mulholland & Jordan, W20. N° de ref. de la librería 13941
