My Secret Life in Hut Six: One woman's experiences at Bletchley Park
My Secret Life in Hut Six: One woman's experiences at Bletchley Park
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars One piece from a ten thousand piece jig-saw puzzle., 24 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. This testimony is indeed a golden egg from a goose who never cackled until it was almost too late. The story is expertly told by her son without spice gloss or glamour. It is first hand testimony of a Bletchley Park operative and captures the very spirit of the experience through which she lived. It is not the story of a glamourised intelligence operative rather the account of ordinary academic lady involved in an extraordinary and secret occupation for the duration of the war.
Sadly, because of the Official Secrets Act, many of her contemporaries died without telling their stories which makes her account an even more precious and important piece of history.
A really informative and pleasurable read.

An excellent book. As an avid reader already of anything written by or about Patrick O'Brian I was delighted to read this book. This period in history is O'Brians' domain and he certainly does it justice in this wonderfully well researched, informative and entertaining book.

A very competent compilation of the factual memories and experiences of a small number of the remaining Bletchley girls. So interesting to compare and contrast the attitudes of of the subjects, coming as the did, from a wide range of social and economic backgrounds.

To read the book makes the man even more of a mystery. When and where did he gather the information that enabled him to write so authoritatively about naval matters in the time of sailing ships. A must read for lovers of books.

This review is from: TV Guide UK - ON AIR (App)
This is a useful app providing you can link to the net. This is particlarly useful when I want to view a programme which is of no current or future interest to the rest of the family and therefore there is little or no point in recording the programme for later viewing.
