Description
"The Allied efforts that led to the breaking of Germany's Enigma code have been well publicized. Less well known but equally critical to the war effort was the combined British-American success at breaking the various Japanese codes. [Michael] Smith, a journalist who has worked for the London Sunday Times and the Daily Telegraph, writes a real-life thriller that unfolds like a classic spy story. The heroes here are not dashing secret agents; instead, they are seemingly fanatically dedicated and patient plodders who pore over the myriad possibilities involved in code breaking. Smith shows how the failure to fully understand Japanese cable traffic led to the disaster at Pearl Harbor. He proceeds to illustrate the manner in which Allied cooperation in code breaking led to future successes in the Pacific, including the critical Battle of Midway. This is an engrossing and exciting recounting of an obscure but important facet of World War II."Booklist
