How do we know about the men and women who broke important World War II military and diplomatic codes? What were the challenges, and what happened to them? This book shows how we know about the Allied codebreakers and their experiences from primary and other sources. It includes information on some historical detective work that has taken place, using documentary, archaeological, and oral evidence, that has enabled historians to piece together the fascinating story of those who provided top secret information known as Ultra and Magic.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 6–10—Using a question-and-answer organizational format, each book begins with an account of a dramatic incident, followed by chapters that ask and answer questions about the subject's background, main events, and historical significance. Although most of the topics are American history, authors discuss their relevance to world history. "History Detectives" sidebars introduce readers to the basics of primary source research, such as how to find, critically evaluate, and use sources. Maps, charts, and large illustrations and photos add interest, while sidebars introduce important figures, excerpt documents, or pose critical thinking questions. This set differs from "Everything Has a History" (Heinemann-Raintree, 2014) because it offers single-topic histories with additional information about primary source research. Similar topics have received wide extant coverage, but these titles provide enough material and research guidance to be good supplementary report choices.
