Fascinating insight into a hidden corner of the Second World War . Not only do you get a glimpse into people working in London during this time but also another piece in the jigsaw of the workings of MI9.

4.0 out of 5 stars Didn't Live Up to Expectations 9 April 2015
By By CJs Pirate - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book didn't live up to my expectations. It seemed Ms. Ive was more of a little ole churchlady in her story telling than a post war whistleblower. I had hoped for much, much more. It wasn't bad, but then again, it want great either.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Fascinating Addition to the Story of WWII 31 Dec. 2013
By Elder Prep - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
An important addition to the story of the vital communication links between the U.S. and England during the war and the people who insured its security. With the shocking revelation that the German technical establishment had developed a method to unscramble the Allied voice security scrambling technology and how the Allied communications staff attempted to reinstate voice security by call evesdropping monitoring is a splendid tale filled with human warmth and interest. Ive is a fine story teller and she brings to life the efforts of her group in the faceless, almost unknown departments in the British war effort. It would have been of interest to the reader had the author had included the story of the German success in developing the un-scrambling technology and opine why the Allies did not develope alternative communication methodologies.
