Description
 
Stephen Budiansky. In the 1990s a million pages of new WW2 codebreaking records were released by the U.S. mil. & the British govít. This volume presents the history of the war that these documents reveal. This is an astonishing epic of a war that was won not simply by brute strength but also by reading the enemyís intentions. Brings to life the unsung codebreaking heroes of this secret war, including Ian Fleming, whose daredevil espionage schemes to recover codebooks resembled the plots of the 007 novels he later wrote. Demonstrates the mathematical insight & creativity of the cryptographers by showing step-by-step exactly how the codes were broken. Diagrams, maps & photos show exactly how, why, & where the secret war was on. B&W photos.
