About this Book

Condition: Very Good. Signature (prev. owner?) on FFEP and title page.
Description: Lots of books have already been written about Enigma, and they all have one characteristic in common. They all say that it was thanks to the brilliant code-breakers at Bletchley Park that Britain managed to read Nazi Germany’s most secret messages. But what has been written has given a false impression about how the code was really broken. The code-breakers did of course make a vital contribution. But they would never have achieved what they did if some of the Enigma code-books and manuals had not first been captured by spies and ordinary British seamen who risked, and sometimes lost, their lives in the battle for the code.
Extras: B+w photographs.
