The 'Brilliant' Inside Story
on 25 July 2010
Station X is a brilliant, witty and sad book, written by those of the inner-circle of BP. Anybody researching The Enigma Machine and it's workings, would find this essential reading! All the Services are represented, and many of those involved give first hand accounts of the vital role played in the war by the genius's at BP.
This book is informative, yet fun; and when they succeed it's amazing, when they battle for days and night to crack the codes and are fully aware men are dying, they respond by working ever harder to get the job done.
You will be full of admiration for these folk who shortened the war by years not days! As Lady Hooper's poem shows, many never knew how the part they played fitted in; and this is the best book to read, from those who did know and cared, doing such a wonderful 'job'!
I can't recommended this book often or highly enough, for anyone who thinks they know how the war was won - it is required reading, and enjoyable, dry witted, and full of pathos to boot!
