During the second world war, the United States and its allies were struggling to find a code by which to communicate across the Pacific Ocean -- one that could not be broken by the Japanese enemy.

Through their incredible linguistic skills, the Allied forces were able to convey life-or-death information to one another -- information that, in some cases, altered the very course of the war
Seizing the enigma : the race to break the German U-boat codes, 1939-1943 by David Kahn( )

10 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For almost four desperate years, from 1939 to mid-1943, the British and American navies fought a savage, losing battle against German submarine wolfpacks. The Allies might never have turned the tide of that historic battle without an intelligence coup, and the race to break the German U-boat codes is one of the last great untold stories of World War II. David Kahn, the world's leading historian of cryptology, brings to life this tense, behind-the-scenes drama for the first time. Seizing the Enigma provides the definitive account of how British and American code-breakers fought a war of wits against Nazi naval communications-and helped lead the Allies to victory in the crucial Battle of the Atlantic
