Here's Richard Stokes' great website debunking the Maskelyne version of his wartime activities, which may have killed some of the planned projects (I think Tom Cruise optioned a screenplay at one point). Stokes gave a great talk about this at an LA Conference a few years ago. I thought his research was going to be featured in GENII at some point. Hope so!
