At Bletchley Park, some of Britains most talented mathematicians, linguists, and intellectuals were assembled to break Nazi codes. Kept secret for nearly thirty years, we have now come to realise the crucial role that these codebreakers played in the Allied victory in WWII.
Written by Dermot Turing - the nephew of famous codebreaker Alan Turing - this illustrated account provides unique insight into the behind-the-scenes action at Bletchley Park. Discover how brilliant and eccentric individuals such as Dilly Knox, Alan Turing and Joan Clarke were recruited, the social life that grew up around the park, and how they dealt with the ever-present burden of secrecy. Dermot looks at the growth and evolution of the Bletchley codebreaking through the stories of the people who worked there. In following that story, surprises emerge and the lives of the people whose contributions have been lost are rediscovered.
Codebreakers of Bletchley Park brings to life the stories of the men and women who toiled day and night to crack the seemingly unbreakable enigma code. This book is highly recommended to everyone who is interested in not only the development of Bletchley Park as a codebreaking centre but also the people who made it happen.
