Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It's a privilege to endorse David Kahn's work; he is an authority on the history of cryptology. His "Hitler's Spies" and "Seizing the Enigma" are more exciting than fiction. Advancing technology has turned his tour de force, "The Codebreakers," into what one reviewer called an antique, but after all, it's a history. That makes my well-read copy a collector's item. I'll keep it.
