    Book cover


    Hitler's lost sub: America had just entered World War II, but terrifying unseen weapons were stalking US targets, sinking over 400 ships just miles from American shores in the worst naval defeat in United States History. Hitler's sunken secret: One of the most daring resistance operations of World War II was the 1944 sinking of the Norwegian ferry Hydro, with its cargo of "heavy water" destined for the Nazi's secret atomic bomb project.

    The great escape: Over six hundred Allied prisoners banded together to dig three highly sophisticated escape tunnels from the German prison camp Stalag Luft III. Each tunnel was outfitted with railways, electric lights, and even underground air pumps. Nazi prison escape: Colditz Castle in Germany boasted medieval walls 12 feet thick and 100 feet tall, surrounded by double-fenced barbed wire, battlements 75 feet thick, and around-the-clock armed sentries. Reveals the daring schemes and ingenious devices that helped over 300 prisoners attempt breakouts.

    Decoding Nazi secrets: In 1940, Europe lay under the Nazi jackboot. German bombers unleashed the blitz against Britain and U-boats decimated the convoys, her only lifelines. Churchill had a secret weapon: a group of American and British mathematicians, crossword fanatics, linguists, and chess champions who decoded an "unbreakable" Nazi device and changed history.
