New book, 608 pages. This book reveals a host of previously untold stories about codes and code-breaking during WW2. It covers such stories as the breaking of the Japanese diplomatic Purple cipher, which led to the defeat of Germany, and why America and England agreed to use nuclear weapons against Japan, and the real position of the Japanese leaders prior to Hiroshima. With information gathered from 1.5 million U.S. Army documents and 15,000 pages of Japanese messages, the author constructs the most complete history of American codebreaking activities and their consequences.
