Contents: In the history of World War 2, the role of the British code-breakers at Bletchley Park has increasingly become to be seen as one of the most important facets of the ultimate Allied victory in World War 2. Names like 'Ultra' and 'Enigma' are now familiar well beyond the naval and military historian, aided by films and novels. The story of the German naval code breakers is less well known but, arguably, just as important for determining the course of World War 2. In German Naval Code Breakers, naval historian Jak P Mallmann Showell delves deep into the archives to produce the first definitive account of German naval code breakers during World War 2. The book looks in detail at how German code-breaking developed after the traumas of defeat in 1918, the nature of the codes used by the British and US navies during World War 2, how the German naval code-breaking department was organised during World War 2 and other departments involved in the gathering of naval intelligence. In particular, the book will examine the successes and failures of German code-breaking activities during the war and these impacted upon naval operations in European waters. Amongst topics examined are the role of the code-breakers on the major engagements of the war such as D-Day and Battle of the Atlantic. More than 50 years after the defeat of the Third Reich, it is time that due credit is given to the important role that German code-breakers had in the war. Whilst unable, ultimately, to prevent the defeat of Nazi Germany, the code-breakers did have a significant influence on the course of the war - a significance that this major new work from Jak Mallmann Showell makes explicit. As a major contribution to contemporary understanding of World War 2 naval history, the book should be on the shelves of all those interested in the history of the war.
