    An excellent account of a not well known, but crucial, part of breaking the German Enigma. The end hit me the most by seeing all these individuals who played such a critical role in war, essentially abandoned by the allies with no home to return to due to the steamroll of communism. ...

    Interesting to see the other - the Polish - side of the story and how they were way ahead of anyone else. Also fun that Egar Allan Poe?s story actually ended up influencing world history. It would have been nice with some more explanation of the mathematics. There is only a short app...

    With the release of classified documents, the important role of mathematicians in cracking the German Enigma machine coding in WWII has been celebrated in books and movie. It turns out that there is a fascinating backstory of the primary role of Polish cryptologists and mathematicians....

    As the story of how the Enigma was cracked is told from a British perspective the Poles hardly feature at all. This is especially true after films like The Imitation Game and the geniuses at Bletchley Park. In the Polish version of the story it's another group of genial mathematicians ...

    A truly excellent book. Turing does not spare details, but neatly avoids rigorous mathematical explanations of the enigma code and bomba and bombe machines. He gives a thorough account of the history of World War II's greatest code breakers and truly captures the emotions and challenge...
