Description
Discover the stories of over 50 men and women, and the codebreaking Bombe and Colossus machines, which defeated the Nazis from the secret intelligence station at Bletchley Park. Leading intelligence author Dermot Turing (b.1961), nephew of the famous Alan Turing, writes authoritatively to capture the stories of what life and work at Bletchley entailed. Mixing tales of relentless toil, eccentric ‘professor types’, technological invention, and selfless service in strictest secrecy: this tribute to the codebreakers behind the station is told with immediacy and verve. Combining expert research, unique testimony and evocative photographs, learn about the development of Bletchley and its influential afterlife, only coming to light publicly from the 1970s.
