This beautifully presented slipcased collector''s edition of the best selling title, The Lost World of Bletchley Park is a comprehensive illustrated history of this remarkable place, from its prewar heyday as a country estate, its wartime requisition and how it became the place where modern computing was invented and the German Enigma code was cracked, to its post-war dereliction and then rescue towards the end of the twentieth century as a museum.

1938 recruiting memo with a big tick against Turing''s name

Churchill''s ''Action this day'' letter giving code breakers extra resources
