Two months to the day before the surrender of Third Reich, the Germans launched a night raid from Jersey on Granville. One hundred and fifty and a dozen boats participated in this operation having three main objectives: making the port unusable, grabbing one or more vessels for refueling and to destroy all buildings lying in the harbor. The raid, that one historian has called "naval hold-up", made history by the audacity of its design and effectiveness of its participants. The story deserves to be told, seventy years later, in an illustrated book including many period photographs, maps, plans and computer graphics.
