A first-hand account by multiple members of the
UK WWII code-breaking department, written 30 and more years after the close of the war(written from memory as no documents were preserved to conform with secrecy laws)--a group that did much to save Allied lives and shorten the war. Each chapter is written by a specific person and follows this general format: how recruited into the service, where stationed, an overview of the work done, and personal opinion as to its worth. Very enlightening and somewhat surprising. Most surprising fact: The Germans never seriously believed that their Enigma code system could be broken, and the Allies not only did so(in the late 1930s) but kept that breakthrough secret protected from the Germans throughout the war
There is much technical analytical information on all Axis code systems, including the use of early logic-circuit automated machines we would now call "computers". Well-written essays by largely unsung heroes of WWII.
