9780199578146: Colossus: The secrets of Bletchley Park's code-breaking computers
Review:

Listed in SciTech Book News"Reading Colossus, a book about the world's first fully electronic computer that was built during the Second World War to crack the codes of high-level Nazi communications, is like reading a suspenseful spy story! It is entertaining to read and at the same time one learns a lot about the history of cryptography and code breaking secrets, decryption and related technologies. Historical pictures along with many interesting charts make the book indispensable to anyone who reviews or writes about the history of computer technology."--Human-Computer Interaction International News

Review:

Copeland's book is a masterpiece. ( George Dyson, author of Turing's Cathedral)

Review from previous edition Copeland and other contributors have rightly done Flowers and the Tunny code-breakers proud

An engaging book that will be essential reading for historians of twentieth-century technology and warfare. ( Nature)

formidably detailed ( Guardian)

compelling compilation ( New Scientist)

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. 232 x 156 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. At last - the secrets of Bletchley Park s powerful codebreaking computers. This is a history of Colossus, the world s first fully-functioning electronic digital computer. Colossus was used during the Second World War at the Government Code and Cypher School at Bletchley Park, where it played an invaluable role cracking enemy codes. Until very recently, much about the Colossus machine was shrouded in secrecy, largely because the codes that were employed remained in use by the British security services until a short time ago. This book only became possible due to the declassification in the US of wartime documents. With an introductory essay on cryptography and the history of code-breaking by Simon Singh, this book reveals the workings of Colossus and the extraordinary staff at Bletchley Park through personal accounts by those who lived and worked with the computer. Among them is the testimony of Thomas Flowers, who was the architect of Colossus and whose personal account, written shortly before he died, is published here for the first time. Other essays consider the historical importance of this remarkable machine, and its impact on the generations of computing technology that followed. Nº de ref. de la librería AOP9780199578146
