New Book Shows Historical Link to Ian Fleming's Thriller Moonraker

The British Daily Mail offered an interesting piece on a new book by military historian Sean Longden.

According to the newspaper, Longden's book, T-Force: The Race for Nazi War Secrets, 1945, reveals uncanny resemblances between historical events and Ian Fleming's thriller Moonraker.

Fleming, who served as a Royal Navy Commander and personal assistant to the admiral who was the director of British naval intelligence during World War II, was a position in to know about the secret T-Force unit assigned to capture Nazi secrets and rocket scientists just ahead of the Soviets at the end of the war.

Forget the awful film, but Fleming's novel Moonraker is a very good thriller and Longden's book sounds interesting.

More to come.
