How ‘Ultra’ and ‘Magic’ Led to Allied Victory

The vital role of the intercept stations which took down the enemy messages, providing the raw material for the cryptographers to break, is also explored.

The book shows how the code breakers were able to shorten the war by as much as two years and bring Signals Intelligence, in the postwar years, into a new era of military intelligence gathering.
