Green cloth with black and silver titling to the spine and upper board. Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the introduction: “Lots of books have already been written about Enigma, and they all have one characteristic in common. They all say that k was thanks to the brilliant code-breakers at Bletchley Park that Britain managed to read Nazi Germany’s most secret messages. But what has been written has given a false impression about how the code was really broken. The code-breakers did of course make a vital contribution. But they would never have achieved what they did if some of the Enigma code-books and manuals had not first been captured by spies and ordinary British seamen who risked, and sometimes lost, their lives in the battle for the code.”
