Description
Desperate to regain the upper hand in World War II, the Axis powers launched an audacious plan in February 1944. The submarine U-864 was to leave Germany with scientists, advanced rocket and jet aircraft technology, and tons of mercury for missile and torpedo detonators, in the hope that Japan could re-establish air superiority in the Pacific and draw the United States away from Europe, allowing Germany to prepare an impenetrable defense. Jerome Preisler and Kenneth Sewell relate in gripping detail how British codebreakers and Norwegian agents uncovered the plan, spurring a massive sea hunt that ended when the HMS Venturer became the only sub in history to sink another sub underwater.

"Reads like a tense thriller, but the authors also keep a steady course on the human aspect of their tale as they reconstruct the events behind this little-known WWII incident and its aftermath."Publishers Weekly
