  • I have read many books on the "behind the scenes" action during WW II, and this book is disappointing. It seems to be a compilation of the rumors and disinformation propagated during and after the war. Many observations and narratives in this book strayed so far from other, better documented, books on the subjects, I stopped reading about 3/4 of the way through. The descriptions of the development of the Enigma and Ultra are so superficial and faulty, I just kept shaking my head while reading them. Save your time and money!

  • More than wonderful

  • interesting but sad that there are or were people that tried to get rid off other people with such terrible methods.

  • The author writes in an informative and engaging style. My 12 year old sons, who enjoy military history, have asked for, and read, all the books in this series.

  • Interesting book!

  • thx :)

  • I bought this for my son (13) who is interested in World War II. He doesn't normally like to read - but loved this book and read it from cover to cover.

  • Just as described. Great transaction.
