Not for the casually interested
on 9 February 2011
This book brings together written accounts of wartime work at Bletchley Park by staff who worked there; in that sense it is probably unique and as these people get older and die it will not be repeated.
Those working at Bletchley Park were not allowed to discuss their work with others (even their colleagues) so the accounts in this book are both disjointed and overlapping.
This book is not for the casually interested. It does not provide an overview of the work or anything about the significance of the work. This book is for those who want to know the details of what went on, in the words of those who did the work. No other book I have seen provides the detail that this book does.
