This is the first book to describe how Bletchley Park and its Indian and Far Eastern outposts broke a series of Japanese codes and cipher systems of dazzling varity and complexity. Their achievements made a major comtribution to the Allied victory in Burma, and probably helped to win the war, shortening it perhaps by two or three years. Alan Stripp gives his first-hand account of the excitement of reading the enemy's mind, or working against the clock, hampered by one of the world's most daunting languages and the knowledge that they were facing an unyielding and resourceful enemy who had never known defeat.
