In the first major amphibious assault of the war, British troops invaded the island of Madagascar in 1942, fearful that the Japanese would get there first and threaten British shipping routes to Egypt and India. This book describes the attack, known as Operation Ironclad, and the ensuing six-month campaign on the Vichy French-controlled island, assessing the operation's strategic importance and the assault's influence on the planning and execution of seaborne attacks later in the war.
