    With an extraordinary cast of characters - archaeologists, geologists, physicists and mathematicians as well as daring reconnaissance pilots, this book tells the story of the Central Interpretation Unit at RAF Medmenham, the little-known partner organization to the code-breaking centre at Bletchley Park. It tells how pilots took aerial photographs over occupied Europe and how the Medmenham interpreters invented a completely new science to analyse those pictures.
