5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent account of Britain's best kept secret., 30 Jan 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Ultra Goes to War: The Secret Story (Penguin Classic Military History) (Paperback)
This book is a "must read" for people who have an interest in the codebreaking operations that took place at Bletchley Park during World War II. The author is well researched, and sets the historical background to operation Ultra in a precise manner, thus aiding the reader's understanding of the crucial task undertaken by the codebreakers at such a crucial stage of the conflict in Europe. The creation of the vast network of evaluation and dissemination of military information that Ultra produced is also explained, and good reference is made to landmark events, such as the British warnings given to Stalin on the imminent German invasion (which he readily ignored) as well as the myth of the British sacrificing the city of Coventry for the sake of Ultra in the Luftwaffe's operation "Moonlight Sonata".
Unlike any other history book, the storytelling in this book unfolds in such an exciting manner, that it guarantees to keep you reading well into the early morning hours.
