  • An incredible and engaging Australian story!

    This is a highly readable and thoroughly engaging book about the unknown men and women involved in code-breaking in Australia. I'm not usually a fan of military history but the human stories intertwined with the more technical aspects of cryptography and traffic analysis I found to be gripping. The author interviewed more than 20 of the small number of remaining veterans in this area. I particularly loved learning about the incredible Mrs Mack and her girls in green and I would love to have met the very colourful and brilliant Lieutenant Colonel Mic Sandford. These people should be household names but sadly they have never been recognised by the Australian Government for their incredible work.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A part of Australian WWII history one never knew

    A great insight into the workings of signals intelligence and Australia in WWII. I particularly enjoyed learning of the local indiscreet locations around Melbourne and Sydney where this valuable work was undertaken.

  • Needs specialist proof reading

    People who buy this sort of book generally have a thorough prior grounding in either the period, or the topic, or both. So the errors in detail that this title is riddled with are likely to be very irritating to the typical reader. They certainly were to me. An interesting tale spoiled by sloppy ancillary research.
