Bletchley Park is celebrated as the home of the Enigma code-breaking operation, but it was just one of many country houses requisitioned during the Second World War. Handsomely illustrated with period photographs, this book examines the fates of 20 houses around Britain that were used as hospitals, military headquarters, troop billets or - in the case of Blenheim Palace - by MI5. Some, such as Castle Howard, have been restored to their former glory while others were sadly wrecked beyond repair.
