The Government Code and Cipher School at Bletchley Park is well known for its code-breaking activities during the Second World War.
This talk will introduce the lesser known parts of the Bletchley Park story. It will reveal the scale of that code-breaking operation, how challenges were overcome, and will describe the efficient 'Intelligence Factory' which was created.
By using the D-Day operation as an example, the true scale of the code-breaking operation is revealed. Likewise, the experiences of the thousands of workers, who processed thousands of pieces of vital intelligence daily, are described.
Dr David Kenyon is the research historian at Bletchley Park, the Second World War code-breaking site in Buckinghamshire. His latest book, 'Bletchley Park and D-Day', was published by Yale University Press in 2019.
