The Secret War: Personal Accounts of the secret heroes of World War II - Softcover

 
9780715327197: The Secret War: Personal Accounts of the secret heroes of World War II
This title offers a comprehensive look at the undercover war, revealing just how much of Wwii was won away from the battlefields and how each side desperately tried to get into the 'mind set' of their enemies' code makers.

From the British cryptologists to the Navajo Indians whose codes helped win the war against Japan, this book reveals the stories of extraordinary people and their chance finds, lucky accidents, dogged determination and moments of sheer brilliance, to expose how the war was really won.

It includes an intriguing glimpse of the early history of the computer - its spectacular uses and subsequent development. It features vivid first-hand accounts from the staff of Bletchley Park, French and Dutch resistance fighters, the American secret agents and members of the Services Liaison Unit who passed on vital coded information to field commanders. It also includes a 16 page plate section with rare archive photographs.
