1.0 out of 5 stars I almost lost the will to live, 25 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I fear I must disagree with my fellow reviewers. First: very little information in this book is new. Second the story is told in the most over written and convoluted style that by half way through I had almost lost the will to live. The writer repeats the same information over and over, he promises much but actually delivers very little as he concentrates on details to the exclusion of the overall picture. If the reader knows nothing of SIGINT and can stand the writing style then it may be worth a try but otherwise, no.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap Junk, 4 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I suppose I should have known that a Forstner drill bit sent all the way from China for £3 would not be any good. Memo for the future, "cheap tools are expensive" now I will go and buy Bosch.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pointless, 5 Oct 2012
If you want a history of the Y Service avoid this book, its light, frothy and pointless. It tells the reader very little and what it does tell is often in bad English.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not about Overlord, 4 Aug 2012
Awful, overlong and irrelevant, little or nothing about Overlord, Self indugent and misleading. Only buy if you needs lots of boring detail about obscure army units
