Summary Saboteurs

Saboteurs

Michael Dobbs the story of the botched mission and a subseuent trial by military tribunal resulting in the swift execution of six saboteurs offers great insight into the tenor of the country and the state of American intelligence during World War II and becomes what is perhaps a cautionary tale for our times From the Trade Paperback edition. What kept this from a higher rating wasn t really the author s fault other than he did pick the event the criticism I have is the conclusion is anti climatic as despite the extensive planning and training the so called saboteurs sabotaged nothing Perhaps their executions could have served as the climax but the trial and execution is handled in a perfunctory manner In the end what I expected to be a deep tale of intrigue and WW II spydom instead details the historic account of a Nazi clown show Interesting read but somewhat of a letdown
