Geniuses At War: Bletchley Park, Colossus, and The Dawn of the Digital Age by David A. Pierce. The author brings his expertise in history and technology to excellent use in his latest book. Following the exploits of the colorful collection of geniuses installed in Bletchley Park during World War II, he weaves a magnificent, compelling and understandable narrative of the technological innovations that were used to break the many military and police codes and ciphers of the Nazis. In this book, the code breakers come to life as people grapple with personal conflict and politics while working together (and sometimes against each other) in the relatively egalitarian environment of Bletchley. Many of the group’s innovations find attention in Price, but he mainly focuses on the events and people who were involved in the invention of Colossus – the first programmable electronic digital computer that was supposed to crack the German armed forces’ Lorenz cipher.
