1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing more than a namedropfest, 11 Feb. 2012
If you want to learn about how codes and ciphers were broken at Bletchley, don't go anywhere near this book. Asa Brigg's title is a complete misnoner. The book is quite simply a namedropfest of the highest order. "I was there at such-a-time with So-And-So who knew Thingummy who was at university with Whatzisname, who had a fling with Forgetername". And it goes like this ... on... and on ... and on.

Really I expected some serious work from such a well know historian as Asa Briggs, not this pile of junk. The book's title is a breach of the Trades Descriptions Act.

Complete tosh. Can I have my money back, please?
