Just the sort of book to give anyone that is interested in the Second World War and the people that worked at Blechley Park.

This book was not what I wanted - no reflection on the book so much as I misunderstood its content style.

Interesting Book, But Tiny Print 17 Mar. 2014
By Ernie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
An interesting review of many of the great secret efforts made by the British during WWII that helped the Allies win the war. There are duplicates of actual communications in pockets throughout the book. The biggest problem that I had with this book is the size of the type. It is tiny! There are too mnay books being published today that have printy that is far too small for many readers, especially older ones. I have gone to Large Print editions and have found that Thorndike Press is a great source for some of the hoistory books that I enjoy redaing.
Broad coverage, and engaging format 6 Jun. 2013
By Brad Bunnin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
To call this a book is an inaccuracy, because it's a book and much more: a collection of artifacts relating to the times and the activities of Britain's code and cipher solvers, and more. It's a fine acquisition for anyone interested in the activities of UK's operatives.
