About this title


In the No. 1 bestseller Station X, Michael Smith brought us the riveting true story of how British experts broke Nazi Germany's wartime codes. In The Emperor's Codes he continues this fascinating story as he examines how Japan's codes were broken and the effect this had on the war in the Far East.

The Emperor's Codes takes the reader into the lives and loves of the men and women battling to break the Emperor's codes. It shows how these intrepid code-breakers uncovered the secret Japanese preparations for the invasion of Malaya and the attack on Pearl Harbor. Using memories of those at the forefront of this battle, this is a fascinating and previously untold story.

From the Inside Flap:

The Emperor's Codes moves across the world from Bletchley Park to Pearl Harbor; from Singapore to Colombo; and from Mombasa to Melbourne, describing the extraordinary exploits of the British codebreakers during the Second World War -- all fascinating, astonishing and amazing.

Where previous books have all emphasized the roles played by the American codebreakers this is the first full account of the critical role played by Bletchley Park and it's worldwide outposts. Using the memories of those at the forefront of the battle, Michael Smith reveals a gripping story.
