Descripción

8vo., First Edition, with 8 plates and front and rear endpaper maps, endpapers very lightly spotted; cloth, gilt back, a very good, clean copy in unclipped dustwrapper. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR ON TITLE. Beesly served in OIC from 1940; his account is the first to describe in detail its fight against Germany, excluding the Mediterranean theatre. A useful complement to Maclachlan but with the advantage that ULTRA was beginning to declassify and there is here much new material. Specific episodes include the sinkings of the Bismarck and the Scharnhorst, the Channel Dash and Arctic convoy PQ 17. A key text in the unveiling of ULTRA by a central player in its dissemination. Enser p.127; 154; Law 0816. N° de ref. de la librería 10568
