I've read a few books on codebreakers, but never codemakers. With Between Silk and Cyanide, Leo Marks has written a humorous, scathing, wonderfully visual book about his experiences with the British SOE during WWII. He takes an intense time, often remembered only by dates and deaths, and people it with the codemakers and breakers, officers, agents and others who wandered in and out of the corridors at Baker Street. Fascinating and entertaining.
