6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 10 Oct. 2001
Format: Hardcover
A very readable book on a fascinating subject based on the author's personal experience of day to day operations tracking German maritime forces.
This is the story of how the results of Enigma decoding at Bletchley Park and other intelligence were used to plot the location and plans of the German Navy.
A useful reference book and a wonderful read.
