In December 1942, William Sparks and eleven other commandos took part in one of the most daring attacks on enemy shipping -- by canoe. They were to become known as the Cockleshell Heroes, and Sparks was one of only two survivors.

This remarkable account of courage and survival in the face of near-impossible odds would be hard to equal by even the most accomplished storyteller.
