To have to wait until 24 January 2040, the 75th anniversary of Churchill's death, for Bletchley Park to take the wraps off the final Pearl Harbor intelligence is a disservice to our USA. Those that deserve to know will be dead. By 2040 will anyone else give a rip?
Publishers Weekly, 1995-03-06 This sprawling, undisciplined study argues that the U.S. breaking of Japanese diplomatic and military codes played a major role as well in the defeat of Nazi Germany. Lee (coauthor of Pearl Harbor: Final Judgment) suggests that intercepts expressing Germany's commitment to world conquest helped determine the Allied policy of unconditional surrender. He demonstrates that Japanese reports on German defenses in northeastern Europe shaped plans for D-Day. And he argues that decoded messages stressing Japan's search for common ground with the Soviet Union near the end of the war encouraged the dropping of the two atomic bombs on Japan to end the war before this approach could bear fruit. Lee, however, significantly overstates the direct connection between Magic code intercepts and Allied decision-making. Much of his information is also available in Carl Boyd's Hitler's Japanese Confidant?a significantly superior work of analysis and interpretation. Author tour. (Apr.)
