I fail to see how a siege performed by superior forces (Havana) -15000 soldiers, 10000 sailors & marines, and 53 ships- in a 5:1 proportion (3000 soldiers, 6000 sailors, 12 ships) for two months qualify as a "raid". What would you call a "siege", then? Troy?

Havana, yes - really "Outnumbered, outgunned, and against the odds"? :-)

These look interesting. Though like others I'm confused about Havana being in the Raid series. I would think it's more a campaign, unless there was some raid during the seige that I don't know about.

I would love to see Operation Jaywick as future raid title. Reading about it, it sounds like a movie script rather than actual history.

Grierson's Raid sounds intriguing -- if you get the right author for the book.

Operation Jaywick was actually made into an Australian television movie titled "The Heroes" in 1988. I saw it over ten years ago and it was quite good.

Any chance of a book about the Son Tay Raid/Operation Ivory Coast in North Vietnam on November 21st 1970?
