This is beautifully slipcased presented collectorâ??s edition of the best selling title, The Lost World of Bletchley Park, a comprehensive illustrated history of this remarkable place, from its prewar heyday as a country estate, its wartime requisition and how it became the place where modern computing was invented and the German Enigma code was cracked, to its post-war dereliction and then rescue towards the end of the twentieth century as a museum.

Removable memorabilia includes:

  • 1938 recruiting memo with a big tick against Turingâ??s name
  • Churchillâ??s â??Action this dayâ?? letter giving code breakers extra resources
  • Handwritten Turing memos
  • Top Secret Engima decryptions, about the sinking of the Bismark, German High Commandâ??s assessment of D-Day threat and  the message announcing Hitlerâ??s suicide
  • A wealth of everyday items such as call-up papers, security notices and propoganda posters

Newly redesigned interiors with 25% new content, high end slipcase package featuring removable facsimile documents, this is an essential purchase for everyone interested and wanting to experience the place where code-breaking helped to win the war.

Review:

Illustrated Book of the Month â??Less a book than an adventureâ?¿ Even better, the book covers not only the wartime life of Bletchley Park, but also brings the story right up to date with material on the renovation of the buildings and on famous visitors to the site.â?? 

5*

â??an introduction to the place and the people who made the magic happen, and how they lived their covert lives.â??
