Seizing the Enigma, The Race To Break The German U-Boa Codes, 1939-1943

READ THE FULL REVIEW

This is a revised edition of the outstanding and most complete account of cryptography and the Enigma machine. There have been claims that the work of code breakers shortened the war by two years, but it can be argued that it first avoided defeat and then made victory possible – Most Highly Recommended.

Secret Naval Investigator, The Battle Against Hitler’s Secret Underwater Weapons

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The author died in 1989, aged 90, but fortunately he took the time to write this enthralling account of one of the least told important stories of WWII. The Royal Navy attracted a wide range of very different individuals to the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve in the months before the outbreak of WWII. The author was a barrister who became a specialist in investigating German underwater weapons and neutralizing them – Very Highly Recommended.

Women at War in the Classical World

READ THE FULL REVIEW

Many readers may only see women at war as those who played a critical role in two World Wars. This view may be coloured by the Christian and Norman attitude to women as second class citizens but, even then, women were at least victims of war and a very small number were more actively involved as monarchs and, occasionally, as fighters. In the ancient world, women were more closely involved, but not on the scale of those who served during two world wars. – Highly Recommended.

Bookpick: Spring Selection

Bookpick: Spring Selection

by BigJules

This selection covers a broad range of topics including what we can learn from ship models, the life of a Yorkshire bargeman and a scholarly compilation of the importance of the sea in history And there’s also a delightful book about London’s weird and wonderful places, many of which would have been familiar to my hero Thomas Kydd and his fellow Georgians. Whether it’s an addition to your library or just a good holiday read, I hope there’s something for everyone in this eclectic selection.
