An interesting account of both life at Bletchley Park as well as techniques used to break some non - Enigma codes and cyphers. The emphasis here is not on famous people, such as Turing, but rather on those working "in the trenches." Also included is a history of British code breaking between the two world wars as well as during the Cold War. ( )
