Some brief overview of book

Blondie Hasler was the leader of the famous 'Cockleshell Heroes'. He designed the canoes which were used in the operation, he recruited and trained the twelve men who made up this most secret team and led them on their daring mission, code name 'Operation Frankton', to attack enemy shipping in Bordeaux. He was one of only two 'Cockleshell Heroe's who came back alive, the other being Bill Sparks, his partner in the cockleshell Catfish.

His story is told by former Royal Marine, Ewen Southby- Tailyour. Blondie reveals Herbert George Hasler as an extraordinary figure who makes this one of the outstanding biographies of the year.
