Worth the money
on 19 March 2010
The secret wireless war is two films about the secret war waged against Germany during World war two.
The first film is about the work of the amateur radio enthusiast who were asked to help in the fight against Germans spies and more, and ties into the work at Bletchley's Government code and cypher school along with some details about 'Station X'. It discusses some of the work done there, but it also covers the work done by agents in Europe.
The second film covers the work of the propaganda stations against Germany and the vital work done to demoralize the Third Reich's forces and civilian population. This was a real eye opener covering much information that has only become available recently.
Both of the films were entertaining and very informative. A very good source of history on the subject and well produced. I only wish there was a similar film covering the duties of the various 'Y' stations around the country to fill in the gaps. We now know much about Bletchley park, but not too much about the people who listened and fed the information to GCCS.
Recommended if you are at all interested in Military History and/or the history of Radio.
