An occasional series in which writers speak for themselves.
Simon Read is a former journalist and the author of multiple works of nonfiction, including Winston Churchill Reporting: Adventures of a Young War Correspondent and Human Game: The True Story of the “Great Escape” Murders and the Hunt for the Gestapo Gunmen. His newest book is The Iron Sea: How the Allies Hunted and Destroyed Hitler’s Warships, which Douglas Brinkley called “a riveting, fast-paced drama about the havoc Hitler’s surface fleet caused the Allies in World War II.” Read discussed The Iron Sea with Dean Karayanis last fall.
