About this title

Synopsis:

With the renewed interest in wartime intelligence, a timely history of radio intercepting answers the question of how enemy messages are detected in the first place. The focus is on the early war-shortening Y and Radio Intercept Services, and their brilliantly clever inventors and technologists who proved to be unsung heroes with headphones clamped to their ears.

About the Author:

Kenneth Macksey was commissioned into the Royal Tank Regiment during the Second World War and has enjoyed a long and successful career as a military historian. Cassell Military Paperbacks include his THE MILITARY ERRORS OF WORLD WAR II.
