A comprehensive illustrated history of Bletchley Park, from its prewar heyday as a country estate under the Liberal MP Sir Herbert Leon, through its wartime requisition with the addition of the famous huts within the grounds, to become the place where modern computing was invented and the German Enigma code was cracked, its post-war dereliction and then rescue towards the end of the 20th century as a museum whose visitor numbers have more than doubled in the last five years
