Drawing on recently declassified documents, this is the utterly compelling history of the successes and failures of the German Intelligence Services throughout World War II.
Christian Jennings is a British freelance foreign correspondent and the author of six works of non-fiction. Since 1988, across twenty-three countries, he has been writing books and journalism on international current affairs, modern history and popular science for publications ranging from The Economist and Reuters to Wired, The Guardian, and The Scotsman. He has been based variously in Rwanda, Bosnia, Kosovo, Burundi, Kenya and Switzerland. He now lives in Turin, Italy. His recent book At War on the Gothic Line (Osprey, 2016), was described in The Spectator as 'military history at its most engaging'.
This gem of a book delves deep into the murky world of codebreaking
during the last war, highlighting how the Germans intercepted and
decoded Allied signals. Superbly written and researched, it charts
not only how cryptanalysts went about their work, but also its
impact on the war - from each side's perspective - and how the
intelligence was used. * Britain at War *
