27th April 1944. Exercise Tiger. German E-boats intercept rehearsals for the D-Day landings. One dark night, in 1944, a beautiful stretch of the Devon coast became the scene of murderous horror. The villages around the area had recently been cleared of civilians and had become the focus of intense military activity. Tales began to leak out of night-time explosions and seaborne activity. This was practice for Exercise Tiger, the main rehearsal for the Utah Beach landings, Ken Small tells a gripping tale of wartime disaster and rescue in the words of the soldiers who were there, and which was buried by officials until it became almost forgotten. But this man's curiosity turned into a fight to honour the memory of nearly 1,000 American soldiers and sailors who died needlessly in one of the great fiascos of World War II.
