Service Most Silent, J F Turner
Service Most Silent
John Frayn Turner
Magnetic, acoustic, oyster and booby-trap and land mines were Hitler’s top secret weapons. His experts assured him that there was no answer to them. But thanks to the small band of brave men from HMS Vernon, the Navy’s mine and torpedo shore base in Portsmouth, the answer was found – and found quickly. All the courage, tension, urgency and deadly peril of the work of the mine experts are packed into this remarkable book which tells how the Fuerhrer’s plans for Britain’s destruction were defeated.
