Description
Bletchley Park looked like any other sprawling country estate in wartime England. It was, however, the top-secret headquarters of Britain's Government Code and Cypher School, where Nazi Germany's vaunted Enigma code was finally cracked. The nation's most brilliant mathematical minds (including Alan Turing, whose work at Bletchley became a cornerstone of modern computing) toiled on projects of international importance alongside students, factory workers, and debutantes who wished to contribute to the war effort. While other histories have documented the technical aspects of Bletchley, Sinclair McKay portrays the quality of everyday life at this extraordinary facility—the entertainments, pastimes, and furtive romances that accompanied the pressures faced by these covert operatives.

"An eloquent tribute to a quite remarkable group of men and women, whose like we will not see again."—Mail On Sunday (London)
