“Beyond Top Secret U” eBook was published in 2016 (originally published in paper in 1977) and was written by Ewen Montagu (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ewen_Montagu). Mr. Montagu published three books.

I received a galley of this novel for review through https://www.netgalley.com. I categorize this novel as ‘G’. This Non-Fiction work covers World War II and describes some of the ‘Ultra Secret’ operations conducted by British Naval Intelligence during World War II.

Tales are included of how the British ran German ‘spies’ sending misleading information to the German high command. He also tells how the Germans were misled as to the accuracy of their bombing and rocket attacks.

I spent 6 hours with this 192 page book. It was interesting, but it was told in a very dry ‘here are the facts’ fashion. I give this novel a 3.8 (rounded up to a 4) out of 5.

My book reviews are also published on Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/31181778-john-purvis).
