The Codebreakers - The Story of Secret Writing (David Kahn)


Kahn, David. The Codebreakers: The Story of Secret Writing. New York: Scribner, 1996.

The Codebreakers - The Story of Secret Writing is a 1967 book chronicling the history of cryptography, from ancient Egypt to the book's publication. David Kahn's book is considered the best account of the history of cryptography up to that time. Due to its publication date in the 1960s, the book did not cover the breaking of the Enigma code, or the efforts of Alan Turing, which were largely classified until the 1970s. The book was updated in 1996 to include some of the events since its first publication.
