Abstract:
Lt. Commander Richard Cragg’s hand-made Enigma machines deciphered German messages disclosing U-boat locations and led Hitler’s ‘wolves’ to their doom, betrayed by their own orders. Called a ‘genius’ by some who used his machines, Dick rose to head the Naval Code and Signal Laboratory’s Research and Development Department during World War II. Continuing the memoirs begun in Volume 1 (From Hitler to Pearl Harbor, Infinity, 2003), this volume describes cryptographic missions from Halifax to the Aleutians, and also life in shortage-ridden wartime Washington, D.C., 1942-1945, when Dick acquired three new loves: a wife, a sailboat, and a French horn.
