Publisher's Comments

The true story of George Scovell follows the engraver's apprentice who possessed extraordinary linguisitic genius as he is assigned to Wellington's headquarters, where he easily cracked codes used in French dispatches, but when the enemy changed their tactics from simple ciphers to almost unbreakable encoded messages, he was forced to race against time to save the British army from Napeoleon's deadly machinations.
