The Target: Enigma, the German's bafflingly complex enciphering machine. Its code was unbreakable until ULTRA put the key to winning the war in Allied hands.

The Agent: Roberto Rovere, a young Italian-American OSS agent. The Allies have … mehrcold-bloodedly plotted every detail of his capture and death except one: the Germans want him to escape — alive. weniger
