It starts with a discussion of codes in warfare then goes on to discuss Bletchley Park, the events of 1940, the Battle of the Atlantic, North Africa and Italy, the Resistance, Victory in Europe and the War in the Pacific. In each chapter are extensive quotes from the people who were breaking the German codes and messages.

 

In some regards this makes for a fascinating look into the world of code breakers, but the downside is that it makes for a fragmented narrative. Still, a very worthy look a code breaking activities.
