THE THIRD REICH IS LISTENING: Inside German Codebreaking 1939-45
Comprehensive account of the successes, the failures, and the science of Germany's code-breaking and signals intelligence operations from 1935 to 1945. This fast-moving blend of modern history and popular science is told through colorful personal accounts of the Germans at the heart of the story, including a former astronomer who worked out the British order of battle in 1940; a U-Boat commander on the front line of the Battle of the Atlantic; and the woman from the foreign ministry decrypting Japanese and Italian signals.
It investigates how and why a regime as technologically advanced as the Third Reich both succeeded, and failed, in its battle to break their enemy's codes and to use the resultant intelligence effectively, and why they failed to recognize the fact that the Allies had cracked the enigma code.
