5.0 out of 5 stars Code-breaking, 28 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fascinating account of code-breaking and related activities during World War 2. In addition to being informative, it is humorous. I don't know if the book would mean much to today's readers, but as someone who lived through that period and recognized many of the names, it was revealing. Actually, I think some of the current generation SHOULD read it as , in some ways, it is a forerunner of today's electronic products. Also, for anyone interested in undercover activities in wartime, it makes an interesting comparison with today's "spies". This is a book which we have given to other people, who have reacted favorably to it.
