Deed of Glory

A novel by

March 1942.

The audacious British raid on the docks of Saint Nazaire has begun.

It is one of the boldest, most crucial naval operations of the Second World War.

Masterminded by Mountbatten and his team of highly trained commandos, it is a mission of daring, skill and extraordinary heroism.

Time is desperately short, and the outcome never certain.

Captain Jack Ward is a hunter of German E-boats in the North Sea and a veteran of scores of nerve-wracking convoy escorts.

He will become embroiled with Special Operations and the French Resistance.

And into Operation Chariot: The top secret plan to attack Saint Nazaire.

Blending real history and fictional events, Deed of Glory is a gripping and brilliantly researched account of a true life adventure.

Praise for Alan Evans:

'Terrific action at sea on land and in the air ... breathless pace. Evans ranks as a top adventure writer' - Publishers' Weekly
