        Based off the raid at St Nazaire (WWII, 1942) resulting in 5 Victoria Crosses and 80 other decorations for bravery.

          That was pretty cool. Thanks for posting, wheelsee!

          I’d like to hear the stories about the handful of guys that actually made it all the way to Spain!

            That is a great find!! Thanks. The next video I found in that series ties in very nicely with the other thread, “a time to hate”, because while US documentaries on MOH seem to have made a point on talking about how the love of their teammates drove them on, Clarkson drives right into how many of the VC winners were driven on by the hatred of the enemy who were wounding/killing their teammates.
