From the fall of Dunkirk in 1940 to the Normandy invasion of 1944, the German forces occupying France and the Channel Islands were constantly harried by raiding parties of allied commandos crossing the Channel in small, fast boats under the cover of darkness.

Eric Preston’s booklet is mainly the tale of two such raids on Sark in December 1943, which were carried out by forces based in
Dartmouth. But he sets the scene with accounts of some of the other excursions that took place during the earlier years of the war.

The booklet includes several black and white photographs
