By Richard Freeman
November 1942. For the first time in the war, Hitler senses defeat. Bold action is needed.
The result is ‘Operation Armageddon’: a cargo U-boat filled with 250 tons of explosives. Its target is a deadly secret – not even the U-boat’s commander is allowed to know the purpose of his mission.
Marie Le Faucheur, the local Resistance leader, works as a secretary on the base. Her reports on the preparations of the U-boat soon reach Admiralty House in London. Lieutenant Commander James Bosanquet takes charge of the case.
Will anyone listen to Bosanquet when he discovers by accident the true and horrific nature of Operation Armageddon?
Richard Freeman graduated in mathematics before following a career in distance education. He now writes on naval history. His other books include First Command, Midway, Pearl Harbor and Coral Sea 1942.
