  1. I agree John. They did this well. One thing that amazes me is that many people do not seek out and read original testiments to how things were during the war. I have many such books, from those women at Bletchley Park, to a woman who ran the high level information service to senior UK military offices (Joan Bright Astley who wrote The Inner Circle) and later planned meetings of senior military staff with other allies. Such books are cheaply available at Abebooks, if you look for them with the right search terms. Cheers, BT
