Ultra's contribution to the Allied victory is the last great untold story of World War II. Ralph Bennett, who spent his war years decoding German signals at Bletchley Park, here reconstructs what really happened behind the scenes in the campaign for Europe's liberation. Writing with knowledge of more than 25,000 decoded signals, Bennett explains how the top secret decoding of German radio traffic affected the fighting-- from Normandy landings to the German surrender eleven months later. He describes the astonishing success of the deception plan that kept German men and tanks away from Montgomery's front in the dangerous early days of the build up holding them idle around Calais, waiting for an assault the Allied command never intended to make. And the author shows how Montgomery could later watch every stage of the concentration of German armor around Caen, receiving enough advance warning of the arrival of two crack SS Panzer divisions from the Russian front to bring them to a dead stop the moment they attackes.
