"U-571" Writer Sorry About Distorting History
The writer of the pretty fun WW II flick "U-571" regrets the tiny lie in which he claimed Americans captured the Enigma code rather than the British. It was only the most significant spy work of the entire war and saved countless US and British lives. Screenwriter David Ayer promises "I won't do it again," which is wonderful of him. I'm sure the next time he makes a movie about the capture of the Enigma code that he'll keep his word. Thanks, Yank.
