Without Enigma


The Ultra and Fellgiebel Riddles

Kenneth Macksey


Ian Allan 2000
Hardback Illustrated
 

How important was the decipherment of Enigma? Did it give the Allies a vital advantage? In this book, one of Britain's foremost military historians describes a scenario in which, early in 1943, the Germans discover that Enigma has been thoroughly penetrated. Considering how they would have responded, and focusing on the underrated role of Erich Fellgiebel, he offers a compelling argument which challenges the prevailing view about the impact of Enigma. ...more

Betty S Travitsky
