Review

Copeland's book is a masterpiece. (George Dyson, author of Turing's Cathedral)

Review from previous edition Copeland and other contributors have rightly done Flowers and the Tunny code-breakers proud

An engaging book that will be essential reading for historians of twentieth-century technology and warfare. (Nature)

formidably detailed (Guardian)

compelling compilation (New Scientist)
