About the Author

David Kahn holds a PhD in history from Oxford University. He worked for thirty years as a journalist in New York and Paris, and taught intelligence courses at Yale and Columbia. In 2002, he was scholar-in-residence at the National Security Agency in Washington, D.C. His massive history of cryptology, The Codebreakers, is still considered the standard work on the subject.

Reviews

"[Kahn's] 1997 history of cryptology The Codebreakers is regarded as the seminal work on the subject. One senses that in the future Seizing the Enigma will be regarded in the same vein. Kahn tells a long and technically demanding story with all the skills of a professional journalist. He deftly mixes intricate accounts of the workings of the Enigma machines themselves and their accompanying codes with useful pen portraits of the principal characters involved...an absorbing and thoroughly well documented account." -- Naval Books of the Year column in Warship, 2013 "The book remains a highly recommended account with a wealth of materials." -- Naval History Book Reviews, Naval Historical Foundation
