What they say about the book …
“Phil Shanahan’s book will be a great source of pride, not only to the families of the men and the communities they came from, but to all those who revere the Royal Navy and its role in preserving our democracy against the evils of Nazism.” – Julian Lewis MP, Shadow Defence Minister
“An excellent book, written with pace and clarity … it deserves the widest possible audience.” – The Bath Chronicle
“So much of the subject matter of The Real Enigma Heroes reads like a well-plotted thriller that is hard to know whether to learn from it as a historical book or just enjoy it as a cracking good story … the two main strands of the book – the story of the heroes and Shanahan’s initiative to make them household names – are expertly intertwined and genuinely tweak the emotion.” – Navy News
“The Real Enigma Heroes corrects the historical record.” – Hayden B. Peake (writing on the official CIA website).
What they say about the talks …
“Phil Shanahan was one of the best speakers we have ever had and his story of the ‘Real Enigma Heroes’ held everyone spellbound.” – Marsden Green Literary Society
“The events in this story lasted just a brief moment in the middle of a six-year long war. Although short in time the consequences were monumental and the seemingly endless war could well have continued for another two long years resulting in countless more casualties. This story, for so long a well kept secret, has now been told and should now be heard. Phil Shanahan has written a book that tells the story of the three brave men whose actions helped to shorten the war. You can now hear their story as put together by the author in his fascinating presentation. We urge you to hear it!” – David & Jane Maugham, Meriden Rotary Club
