My Rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
I was asked to take a look at this book by a new non-fiction writer. A writer that loves history and plans on sharing little-known stories with his audience. He has a new fan. He is concise and his writing brings the story alive in a small book. I personally am ready for him to bring other stories to light.
Capturing the Enigma is the true story of a daring rescue mission. I loved reading about the brave men and their wise captain Joe Baker-Cresswell aboard the HMS Bulldog.
The history of the Enigma machine is coming out through movies and books, but this book tells of another side of that German coding machine. This story tells of a discovery that occurred through a bit of luck and quick thinking which provided a special opportunity that helped change the outcome of the war. What a riveting story documenting this event. The way it was written made me feel a part of this activity.
I am going to look forward to more books from this author because Patrick Spencer makes the history come alive. This is a wonderful quick read proving great things sometimes come in small packages.
