Michael Smith's latest book is a fascinating insight into a very important part of the British effort in WW2,
This review is from: The Secrets of Station X: How the Bletchley Park codebreakers helped win the war (Dialogue Espionage Classics) (Paperback)
I have already read Station X by this author and Secret Life of Bletchley Park but neither of them were as good as this book. There seems to be far more in this book than either of the others. It reads very well and one only has to turn to the back of the book to see the broad and far-reaching research that was carried out in the construction of this book.
I didn't realise that most of the people at Bletchley were young woman in their late teens and early twenties and they do seem to have enjoyed themselves in all sorts of ways! But what is really good about this book is that it not only tell you how they lived, it also tells you what difference they made at each point of the war. They really did make a difference in a lot of ways.
This is definitely five stars for me.
