I really enjoyed this publication. I have an interest in Ireland myself and also WW2 and I must say the author seemed to have done a very thorough job in researching this subject matter. Additionally, it didn't come across as an urbane, stodgy book and my girlfriend found it as easy to read (and WW2 isn't high on her list of interests !!!). Well done, Dr. O'Donoghue, on a greatly researched and entertaining piece of work ! The fact that all of this actually happened makes it even more readable !Was this review helpful?

I only had a passing interest in the subject matter (German spies in Irelnd during the Second World War) but I was VERY impressed in the way Dr. O'Donoghue tackled it. His writing style was detalied and very informative, yet at the same time laid out in such a way as to make the matter read as enjoyably as a really good novel. The adventures of Mr. Hartmann etc. are all the more compelling because they are all genuine. The book was also very well researched and the fact that Dr. O'Donoghue was able to interview as many of the surviving individuals as possible gives the publication a very genuine and realistic feel to it. This is a MUST READ and I cannot recommend it highly enough !!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
