The extraordinary true story of one of the last surviving women to have worked in codebreaking at both Bletchley Park and the Pentagon. Born one hundred years ago, Betty Webb, MBE, L gion d'honneur, has had a ringside seat to history. After completing her education, Betty faced the usual limited opportunities for women at the time, but the war and fate intervened and, in 1941, Betty joined the Auxiliary Territorial Service, the women's branch of the British Army. After being interviewed by an intelligence officer, she found herself at Euston station with her kit-bag, a travel warrant and instructions to get off the train at Bletchley station.Between 1941 and 1945, Betty was part of the vital, top-secret efforts being made at Bletchley Park to decipher the communications of the Germans and later the Japanese. In 1945, she was sent to the Pentagon and was in Washington DC when the atomic bombs fell on Japan and when President Harry S. Truman announced the end of the war. Betty was unable to reveal the true nature of her work until years later. In this fascinating book, she recounts incredible stories from her time at Bletchley Park and the Pentagon.
