Britain faced defeat unless it could crack the Nazi's 'unbreakable' secret coding machine. In a last-chance effort, the British Secret Service chose a gifted amateur - Elizabeth Pack - a beautiful young American of proven courage and passionate recklessness, to steal the Nazi High Command's greatest secret. An adventure of heart-pounding intrigue that takes the listener from the Spanish Civil War to Berlin, Prague, and Warsaw, Elizabeth's perilous adventures and heated affairs climax in a breath-taking flight across Hitler's Germany on the edge of war. And Elizabeth's prize, an obscure coding machine, provides the margin of victory over Hitler in the Battle of Britain. Crossing By Night is based on the exploits of the real-life American woman who changed the course of World War II. Her extraordinary adventures inspired Ian Fleming to create the famous James Bond.
