Once more and concluding with yet another listing. Commando raids special operations units in action.
Again who has compiled this list I am not sure. Thanks to the video at You Tube.
Ten different military experts and historians and you would get ten different answers? I suspect that is so.
"Top 10 Commando Raids"
"These are the top commando raids of all time. These commando raids were undertaken by the best commandos and best special forces in the world!"
# 10. Moscow Theater Siege. Russians.
# 9. The raid to kill Osama Bin Laden. American, GWOT.
# 8. Great Locomotive Chase. Union, American Civil War.
# 7. Fort Eben-Emael Raid. German, WW2.
# 6. The Siege of Edinburgh Castle.
# 5. The Gran Sasso Raid. Germans, WW2.
# 4. Operation Frankton. British, WW2.
# 3. Raid at Cabanatuan. American, WW2.
# 2. Operation Entebbe. Israeli, GWOT.
# 1. The St. Nazaire Raid. British, WW2.
PERHAPS THE GREATEST RAID OF THEM ALL OMITTED? THE TROJAN HORSE!
Churchill having stated that Frankton of itself shortened the war by six months!! As to this conclusion there is no elaboration.
