Code Breaking

I went to the "world's biggest book store" looking for the Osprey Campaign book on the Normandy invasion. It is a four volume series divided by the different beach fronts. Guess which book they were missing... if you guess the Juno book then 2 shilling for you!

But i did not go away empty handed, I picked up Code Breaker' Victory - How the Allied Cryptographers Won World War II by Hervie Haufler. What an awesome book describing how the use of Enigma and Purple decrypts gave the Allies the edge over the Axis.
