520    Alongside the open conflict of World War II there were 
       other, hidden wars - the wars of communication, in which 
       success depended on a flow of concealed and closely 
       guarded information.Smuggled written messages, secretly 
       transmitted wireless signals, or months of eavesdropping 
       on radio traffic meant operatives could discover in 
       advance what the enemy intended to do. This information 
       was passed on to those who commanded the armies, the 
       fleets and the bomber formations, as well as to the other 
       secret agents throughout the world who were desperately 
       trying to infiltrate enemy lines. Vital information that 
       turned the tide of battle in North African desert and on 
       the Pacific Ocean proved to have been obtained by the time
       -consuming and unglamorous work of cryptanalysts who 
       deciphered the enemy's coded messages, and coded those for
       the Allies.From the stuffy huts of Bletchley Park to the 
       battles in the Mediterranean, the French and Dutch 
       Resistance movements and the unkempt radio operatives in 
       Burma, the rarely-seen, outstanding stories collected here
       reveal the true extent of the 'secret war'.The ongoing 
       need for secrecy for decades after the war meant that the 
       outstanding achievements of wartime cryptanalysts could 
       not be properly recognised.With vivid first-hand accounts 
       and illuminating historical research, VOICES OF THE 
       CODEBREAKERS reveals and finally celebrates the 
       extraordinary accomplishments of these ordinary men and 
       women.
