Operation Columba by Gordon Corera

I will read any book about any animal, and while I was somewhat familiar with homing pigeons and the use of them as messengers, this book caught me off guard with its depiction of the amount of work, dedication, and courage put forth by those involved with the pigeons. As with any good hobby, the amount of jealousy and in-fighting involved also have their place in the narrative. The knowledge produced by the pigeons’ efforts is fascinating. Written more for a military history buff than an animal lover, Operation Columba is perfect for history fans who think they’ve read it all. - Rachel
