Taken At the Flood

(1960)
A novel by

 
 
The attack on the Mohne, the Eder and the Sore dams was an achievement which is perhaps unparalleled in the history of war. The scientists and airmen engaged in this remarkable operation obviously knew a great deal about the dams - including details of their intricate defences. Such information was, of course, vital to a successful attack. But how did they know these things?

This novel tells how two spies were recruited and trained. It paints a brilliant picture of how the great spy rings operated in the midst of enemy country, and describes the dramatic events leading up to the dam busters' raid, 'the single biggest blow of the war'.

Bernard Newman's fictional account, Taken at the Flood, is in fact based a great deal on his own investigations.
In Nazi Germany in 1939, an efficient spy was worth his weight in gold. Bruno Strasser had family connections in England; he spoke fluent English; he knew their customs; he even looked English. The S.S. would never waste such an opportunity.

But Bruno owed his loyalty elsewhere. He promised to give Intelligence in London all the information he could concerning war plans abroad - and what better cover than to be a German Secret Agent? In his biggest assignment yet, Bruno must come against the Gestapo and save his wife from the concentration camps and sure death.
