I used to look at this book on my fathers book shelf but always found it too cumbersome to even pick up. Finally thanks to this audio book I have completed my 'reading ' and must say that for a book 50 years old , where we all know the story and ending, it grips from start to finish. It is a fascinating and compelling story of utter madness, humanity's worst failings and also inspirational bravery and perseverence on all sides. The audio book is a credit to the author and narrator who has done a great job. Highly recommended if you are interested in 20th century history and have a few hours in the car or plane or out walking to listen.
why we never hear of these heroic - sort of story that needs telling . Untill I read this I didn't even know the Germans had Radar in 1940 let alone invented it ! and the achivement of these men who were mainly just regular folks in the pre war world is quite outstanding and heroic
good story well told and well read
I found the whole story fascinating - more so as I had never heard of it before. I don't draw the same conspiracy conclusions s the author but that didn't spoil it .
