In this captivating story, the three men who risked their lives to capture the key to the Nazi Enigma code are detailed. The capture of the Enigma codes helped shorten World War II by at least a year and without their quick actions, the codes might never have been broken. On the night of October 30, 1942, three men from HMS Petard clambered aboard a sinking German U-boat: First Lieutenant Tony Fasson, accompanied by Able Seaman Colin Grazier, and Tommy Brown. Passing codebooks up through the hatch, Fasson and Grazier were caught aboard the sub as she suddenly sank. Brown was saved, along with the code books. It wasn't until 1969 that the men were mentioned for their work in rescuing the Enigma codes and this extraordinary story tells of how these three brave men ultimately saved countless Allied lives and shortened the war.
