Book Review: The Secret Life of Bletchley Park: The WWII Codebreaking Centre & the Men and Women Who Worked There

This was a really interesting look behind the scenes at the very secretive wartime activities at Bletchley Park. I knew a little bit about Enigma and the code breaking successes during the war but had no idea just how big and vital the Bletchley Park operation was.

The book was more about the lives of some of the individuals who worked at the Park than the code breaking work, which I would have liked to have learnt a bit more about. But the stories really painted a picture of what society’s expectations were back then and how people had to put their lives on hold during the war – and yet, life still went on.

A fascinating glimpse of wartime life in England.
