Bletchley Park : The Secret Archives, Includes Memorabilia in Pockets (Hardcover) (Sinclair Mckay)
about this item
The Lost World of Bletchley Park is a comprehensive illustrated history of Bletchley Park, from its pre-war heyday as a country estate, through to its wartime requisition when it became the place where modern computing was invented and the German Enigma code was cracked. Also included is the story of its post-war dereliction and then rescue towards the end of the twentieth century as a museum whose visitor numbers have more than doubled in the last five years. Beautifully redesigned, featuring over 200 photgraphs, 10 items of removable facsimile memorabilia from Bletchley Park and personal collections, and text from bestselling author Sinclair McKay, this will be an essential purchase for everyone interested in the place where code-breaking helped to win the war and the men and women who worked there.
