A Name Lost to History

January 6th, 2012 · No Comments

Taking advantage of a brief lull in the Wired action to steal a day for the book. Back on Monday with a post about the history of submarine rescue, a teaser of which is posted above.

One more thing: If anyone can shed light on the real name of an Algerian secret policeman who went by the handle “No Nuts” in the early 1970s, I’d be much obliged if you could share your intel. He makes some cameos in my book, and I’d like to know more about him. At this point, all I have are vague suggestions that he may have had an unpleasant run-in with a mis-wired bomb during Algeria’s war of independence.
