A memoir of Bletchley Park or 'Station X', home to the most famous codebreakers of World War II. The mansion was the nerve centre for cracking German, Italian and Japanese codes, providing the Allies with vital information. After the war, many intercepts, traffic-slips and paperwork were burned, and the truth about Bletchley was not revealed until F Winterbotham's "The Ultra Secret" was published in 1974. In "Cracking the Luftwaffe Codes", former WAAF Gwen Watkins brings to life the reality of the German Air Section. Her memoir is the first account of this crucial division. In a highly informative, lyrical account she details her eventful interview, eventual appointment at "the biggest lunatic asylum in Britain", methods for cracking codes, day-to-day routine and the decommissioning of her section.
