Added to my to-be-read pile

Last week, the Guardian published an article about the release of The Debs of Bletchley Park, a new collection of stories by Michael Smith. The book focuses on the largely female group of World War II code-breakers who worked at the UK's Government Code and Cypher School, which was run out of Buckinghamshire's Bletchley Park mansion. The work done at Bletchley Park was shrouded in secrecy for decades, but has recently been featured in the 2012 TV miniseries The Bletchley Circle and the current film The Imitation Game. Smith—a trustee of Bletchley Park and chair of the Bletchley Park Trust's Historical Advisory Committee—promises "unique access" to the stories of more than 40 of the women employed at Bletchley Park, and his book sounds like it will be a fascinating read.
