"During Britain's darkest hour, in 1940, extraordinary measures were necessary for survival. This bleak period of defense against the Axis led to the formation of Combined Operations, a semi-independent unit composed of admirals, generals, and air marshals. It became Britain's offensive team which, in the end, was instrumental in the successful invasions of North Africa, Sicily, and Normandy.
