The Real Enigma Heroes was first published in hardback by The History Press in 2008 and launched at Bletchley Park.
It was introduced by Julian Lewis MP, then Shadow Defence Minister, and now chair of the Commons Defence Select Committee. Despite snowy weather, it was one of the best attended book launches held at the world famous codebreaking centre.
Among the audience were fourteen men who took part in the U-559 incident. Sadly, most of them have since died but their recollections of a pivotal moment in the war are preserved in the book.
The Real Enigma Heroes was published in paperback form in 2010 with an e-book planned for 2017 – the 75th anniversary of the action.
