Investigative journalist Simon Parkin tells the gripping story of how a game of battleships and a group of exceptional young women helped to win one of the key battles of the Second World War.

The Battle of the Atlantic in 1941 was an unmitigated disaster with thousands of supply ships ferrying vital food and fuel from North America to Britain being torpedoed by German U-boats - all while Winston Churchill hid the number of British men who were killed during the attacks. He also concealed the fact that Britain was weeks away from surrendering to the Nazis.

This impeccably researched book tells how, in the first week of 1942, a group of unlikely heroes - a retired naval captain and a clutch of brilliant young women - gathered to form a secret strategy unit: one that would spend days and nights designing and playing war games in an effort to crack the U-boat tactics.
