2.0 out of 5 stars Some problems with the paperback, 28 Feb. 2012
By 
This review is from: Colossus: Bletchley Park's Greatest Secret (Paperback)
There are at least two references saying "see the photographs" and "see the plates", but the (at least my) paperback contains no such plates.
Also there's one reference to "The Table in Diagram 20.5", and I could find no such diagram.
Finally there's a reference to "the extended example in Appendix C ... message M2", and my appendix does not contain it.

As for the book, as someone else said: far too long, is 95% about radio links and interception, which rather spoils the really interesting stuff about cracking Fish, and building Colossus (and the other machines).

Rather than waste money on the hardback, I'm going to try the Copeland book...
