Beschreibung

The theft from Bletchley Park in 2000 of the legendary Enigma machine, the device used by the Allies to decode German messages during World War II, was an altogether novel and frightening twist on recent history. Closely followed by the British media, the theft of the Enigma machine was later revealed to be part of a well-orchestrated hate campaign against Bletchley Park's new director, Christine Large. Hijacking Enigma is her story, a harrowing insider's look at what's it's like to be at the centre of a complex cat-and-mouse game and media frenzy.

Pressestimmen

"...this book is an excellent read, and well paced throughout. It is also surprisingly, full of humour." (Sunday Mercury, 28 March 2004) "...with spies and detectives, history and extortion , this is more astounding than a Bond film." (Good Book Guide, April 2004) "...detective story that describes the cat--and--mouse plot played out between the police and the thief of ...[the] Enigma machine..." (Museums Journal, April 2004) "...a fascinating story with many photographs and flashbacks..." (Cryptolgia, July 2005)
