Discover the story of Margaret Rock, Mavis Lever and Joan Clarke – women codebreakers catapulted into the intellectual war fought at Bletchley Park in World War 2.
This fascinating introduction to 3 inspiring women explores their path to war and how they inadvertently forced Bletchley Park to accept that women could break the Enigma cyphers just as well as the men.
Margaret Rock and Mavis Lever (later Batey) worked in Cottage No. 3 where their work had a profound impact on putting the Italian Navy out of the war, as well as ensuring that the Allies were one step ahead on D-Day.
Joan Clarke (later Murray) worked alongside Alan Turing in Hut 8 to crush the dominance of the U-Boat terror in the Atlantic and became Deputy Head of Hut 8 in 1944.
Women Codebreakers at Bletchley Park includes previously unseen photographs, interviews and pays tribute to these unsung heroes of the Enigma war.
Following the discovery of two collections of Joan Clarke’s papers, Women Codebreakers has grown into a three-part series. Part 1 – The Untold Story of Joan Clarke to be released during 2017.
