The gallant rearguard action which led to the capture of the 51st Highland Division at St Valery-en-Caux has never been given the recognition it deserves. St Valery: the impossible odds is a collection of first-hand accounts that re-examine that fateful chain of events in 1940 and re-assess some of the myths that have grown up in the intervening years. Also, traditional Gaelic bards, Angus Campbell from Lewis and Donal John MacDonald from South Uist, give a poet's perspective on the experience.

'Bill Innes's work and the stories his protagonists have to tell are remarkable, both in their content and in their sheer quality of writing.' - Nairn Telegraph
