Seizing the Enigma: The Race to Break the German U-Boat Codes, 1939-1943by David Kahn
Seizing the Enigma tells the story of one of the great dramas of World War II. A multinational corps of cryptologists struggled to break the German U-boat codes that were helping Nazi submarine wolf-packets tear at the lifeline between America and Britian. But these codebreakers realized that German messages could not be read without obtaining the encryption keys from the ships that held them. Several daring captures at sea of key documents and encryption machines by the Royal Navy finally led to mastering the U-boat codes.
