Operation Biting was one of the most thrilling British commando raids of World War II. In February 1942 RAF intelligence was baffled by a newly-identified radar network on the coast of Nazi-occupied Europe, codenamed Würzburg. Max Hastings recounts the cliffhanging tale of the assault to capture key components of this network and portrays the remarkable personalities who had been brought together to fulfil a mission that became a front-page triumph in a season of British defeats.
