True story, worth a read if you are interested in; things English from a while back, or wwII (for younger readers of this review, be advised, ww is not same as www.--.com ) or espionage, etc. Like 'Three day road' (Joseph Boyden), or 'All the light we cannot see' (Anthony Doerr) but not made up (!). As a committed non-fiction reader this book just reinforces my belief that the real world is just so much more interesting and relevant than fiction. I was somewhat put off by the cover and almost did not read it but was glad I did. This book was a good read, a tad dry. (Wondered if Chapman was a psychopath but this was not mentioned.) Real story, amazing how the author pulled it together 60 years after the fact.
