1 6266 MARKS, Leo Between Silk and Cyanide : a Codemaker's War 1941-1945
Hardcover Free Press: New York; 1998; First US Edition B&W Photographs: Very Good in Very Good+ dust wrapper 
Bumped spine ends and corners, tiny smudge on front free endpaper; no remainder mark. Price clipped dust wrapper very lightly edgeworn. A nice copy.; The author's memories of working in the SOE are interspersed with anecdotes (many humorous) of his father's secondhand bookstore, Marks & Co. , 84 Charing Cross Road, London. Leo Marks was the head of communications at the Special Operations Executive, created by Winston Churchill in July 1940 with the mandate to "set Europe ablaze". This book "chronicle's Marks's obsessive quest to improve the security of agents' codes and how this crusade led to his involvement in some of the war's most dramatic and secret operations." Highly recommended.; 'This stunning memoir, often funny, always gripping and acutely sensitive to the human cost of each operation, provides a unique inside picture of the extraordinary Special Operations Executive organization at work. Leo Marks, a cryptographer of genius, reveals for the first time many unknown truths about the conduct of the war - a code maker's war.' This title also recommended by Lyn B., author of the 'I Prefer Reading' blog and member of the DES email discussion group.
