Codename Nemo : the hunt for a Nazi U-boat and the elusive Enigma machine / Charles Lachman.

Lachman, Charles, (author.).

On June 4, 1944, the course of World War II was forever changed. That day, a US Navy task force achieved the impossible--capturing German U-boat U-505. Called Operation Nemo, it was the first seizure of an enemy ship in battle since the War of 1812, one of the greatest achievements of the US Navy and a victory that shortened the duration of the war.
