A nice intro,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Secret Listeners: How the Y Service Intercepted the German Codes for Bletchley Park (Hardcover)
The wireless war is a little documented part of the second world war, however it it was the most important battle fought.
To date most of the accounts have concentrated on decripting enigma and the actions of Bletchley Park. However without the "Y" service there would have been no messages to proccess
This book is an account drawn on peoples direct experiance of working in the service.
The two reasons I have given this book only 4 stars are, firstly I think there is a lot more of this story still to come and secondly because it concentrates on personal experiances it does not actually give a full account of how the system worked or what it actually achieved.
