The Sunken Gold is the story of how a British ship, HMS Laurentic, laden with forty-four tons of Allied gold bound for the United States, is sunk off the coast of Ireland by Germany and the epic struggle by divers from the British Navy to recover the treasure. The book also describes the underwater spywork conducted by the divers by breaking into sunken U-boats looking for codes, ciphers, and other secret documents.
