This book was very enjoyable. It covered a short period of time from the Slapton Sands disaster weeks before D-Day that could have given the Germans the location of the landings for the Invasion of Europe to the end of Operation Neptune (the naval part of Operation Overlord or D-Day). What was interesting was the response to the Slapton Sands disaster and how it evolved into the E-Boat (schnellboote) being a major threat when before they had been an annoyance.
