Some of the events in this movie are loosely based on another lend-lease destroyer, the H.M.S. Campbelltown which took part in Operation Chariot, the actual raid on the German held port of St. Nazaire. The Cambelltown was loaded with explosives, rammed into the dry dock gates and blown up. The dry dock was not repaired until after the war.
