Bletchley Park - The Code-Breakers of Station X, Michael Smith
72 Michael Smith Bletchley Park - The Code-Breakers of Station X
Shire Library 2013 0747812152 / 9780747812159 Paper Back New Book Ref Office 210 x 149 mm, 132 grams 
Bletchley Park, known to those who worked there as Station X, was the scene of one of the greatest Allied triumphs of the Second World War. The breaking of the Nazi Enigma cyphers by Britain's wartime code-breakers continues to fascinate, with well over 100,000 people visiting the scene of their successes every year. Bletchley Park provided the intelligence that ensured Allied victories in the Battle of Atlantic, the war in North Africa and, most crucially, the D-Day invasion of Europe, and it was also the birthplace of the modern computer. The code-breakers were led by men like Dilly Knox and Alan Turing, but also included thousands of 'ordinary' people, the vast majority of them young women. This book contains previously unpublished photographs showing them at work and play. It not only explains how their work influenced the battle against Nazi Germany and its Italian and Japanese allies, but also describes how they lived and loved.

More Tales of Old Barnwood, Richard Auckland & Brian McBurnie
79 Richard Auckland & Brian McBurnie More Tales of Old Barnwood
Bishop's Cleeve Courtyard Books 2013 0956943667 / 9780956943668 First Paperback New CYB 
This new book on old Barnwood, consisting of 120 pages and containing 100 pictures has been written by Richard Auckland and Brian McBurnie as a follow up to Tales of Old Barnwood. It contains a large section on the history of Barnwood House Hospital, the private mental institution which dominated the parish for over a hundred years, and the memories of some of its former employees. Articles on the Barnwood smallpox epidemic, the development of scouting in the parish and the story of Doris Warren's time at Barnwood School are also included. The history of the church choir, the building of the Parish Centre and some interesting stories about the Avenue are among the 33 "chapters". It has tales, too, about some of those associated with Barnwood; people such as Sir Charles Wheatstone, Sir Edmund Saunders and Mary Cole (a Barnwood girl who could have become the Queen of England). This is not a "then and now" book, although there are a few pictures of the area as it used to be, including a previously unpublished photograph of Budgens when it was the local tea rooms.
