About Barce Raid: the Long Range Desert Group’s Most Daring Exploit in World War ll:

SEPTEMBER 1942: Allied special forces launch commando operations against several Axis facilities deep behind the lines in Libya, during the build-up to the second battle of El Alamein. Most successful is a swashbuckling, damaging raid on the Italian-held Barce airfield and town, by Kiwi and British members of the Long Range Desert Group. This is an anatomy of that raid, pieced together by LRDG authority Brendan O’Carroll from interviews with participants, official records from both sides in the conflict, and published accounts.
