What a mess!

This wasn't the retelling of a well known and rather romantic tale from WW2. It chronicled a not so well known raid that some would have us believe was not particularly successful. More importantly, it illustrated the kinds of sacrifice made by innumerable individuals during all facets of the war. If it weren't for these persons, the world that we live in today would be very different. I recommend reading it.
