1941. British aerial reconnaissance discovered what seemed to be a rotating radar tower on a clifftop at Bruneval, near Le Havre. The decision was taken to launch a daring raid on the Bruneval site to try and capture the technology for further examination. The parachute regiment had only been formed a year before on Churchill's insistence. This text tells the tale of this mission from the planning stages, to the failed rehearsals when the odds seemed stacked against them, to the night of the raid itself, and the scientific secrets that were discovered thanks to the paras' precious cargo - the German radar.
