Mrs. Friedman's story changes my viewpoint as I read other WWII books and articles. What haven't we been told about the intelligence behind the decisions made to fight the war? How much did the hidden story influence and direct the told story? This book, among others suggests that it definitely was not a fair game (and I am glad it wasn't, considering the opposition). I would look forward to reading more details about the interlock of the battles with the codebreakers work (but I also don't expect to see this detail anytime soon). I enjoyed the book with all the digressions to include other people and events.
