This book is densely illustrated with the author's unique collection of spy equipment used mostly during World Wars I and II. The text is not thorough and at least in the 2002 edition there are several unfinished sentences. Printer's errors? Explanations of devise usage are intriguing, especially the detailed illustrated use of the Enigma cipher machine.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
