9781848327528: Gordon Welchman: Bletchley Park’s Architect of Ultra Intelligence

‘A magnificent biography which finally provides recognition to one of Bletchley's and Britain's lost heroes.’ Michael Smith

The Official Secrets Act and the passing of time have prevented the Bletchley Park story from being told by many of its key participants. Here at last is a book which allows some of them to speak for the first time. Gordon Welchman was one of the Park’s most important figures. Like Turing, his pioneering work was fundamental to the success of Bletchley Park and helped pave the way for the birth of the digital age. Yet, his story is largely unknown to many. His book, The Hut Six Story, was the first to reveal not only how they broke the codes, but how it was done on an industrial scale. Its publication created such a stir in GCHQ and the NSA that Welchman was forbidden to discuss the book or his wartime work with the media.

In order to finally set the record straight, Bletchley Park historian and tour guide Joel Greenberg has drawn on Welchman’s personal papers and correspondence with wartime colleagues which lay undisturbed in his son’s loft for many years. Packed with fascinating new insights, including Welchman’s thoughts on key Bletchley figures and the development of the Bombe machine, this is essential reading for anyone interested in the clandestine activities at Bletchley Park.

About the Author :

JOEL GREENBERG is an educational technology consultant who researches and writes about Bletchley Park and its role in WWII. His research focuses on how technologies designed and developed there impacted on early computer developments. He is a volunteer supporter of Bletchley Park and a member of its management team.

Review :

"There have been several books about what went on at Bletchley Park in the past few years, in fact there is another title from Pen and Sword on this page, concerning the amazing exploits of Jenny Nater. There is no doubt that the most high profile of these operatives was Alan Turing, who featured in the recent brilliant film The Imitation Game, starring Benedict Cumberbatch; and various news items on our local news have featured interviews with old ladies who once worked on the codes at Bletchley Park, people who were not even allowed to tell their closest family members what they were doing. Joel Greenberg's bookabout Gordon Welchman reveals a man equally as fascinating equally as important as Turing, and tells us even more about what went on in this most secret of establishments during the war years." (Books Monthly)
