This gem of a book delves deep into the murky world of codebreaking during the last war, highlighting how the Germans intercepted and decoded Allied signals. Superbly written and researched, it charts not only how cryptanalysts went about their work, but also its impact on the war - from each side's perspective - and how the intelligence was used. * Britain at War * Editor's Choice * The Armourer, April 2019 *
