Bletchley 1945: a place where nearly 10,000 people would contribute decisively to the Allied war effort. Their role? To decode the Enigma cypher used by the Germans for high-level communications. It is an astonishing story. A melting pot of Oxbridge dons, maverick oddballs and more regular citizens worked night and day at Station X, as Bletchley Park was known, to derive intelligence information from German coded messages. That they succeeded, despite military scepticism, is testament to an indomitable spirit that wrenched British intelligence into the modern age, as the Second World War segued into the Cold War.

Ruined by poor narrator
Good book, interesting read, but the narrator was very poor.
Poor accents, not interested in the story, read as though the best thing was to get through it as quickly as possible.
Read the paper copy!
Great True Story Spoiled by the Reader
The 'reader' - Patrick Molyneux - has the reading skills of a nine year old. Poor phrasing, lack of continuity, lack of English vocabulary and laughable attempts at accents.
The House at Poo Corner because Patrick Molyneux would be the ideal reader!
Patrick Molyneux has no German. This could be forgiven if he'd asked someone about pronunciation and, by the way, he could also have asked someone about pronouncing English words like Cholmondeley.
Anger that the book had been published with such a bad reader and disappointment that such an interesting book has been spoiled.
It should be done again with a better reader.
