£25.00 £3.99

The raid on Zeebrugge, a bid to blockade the U-boats operating out of the Belgian port, was one of the bravest and boldest actions of the Great War, called by Winston Churchill the finest feat of arms in the conflict. Eight VCs were won, the highest number on any day of the war, and this account is based on the story of one of them, Captain Alfred Carpenter who commanded the lead ship on the raid, HMS Vindictive.
