X Y & Z to be published September 1st, 2018

Drawing on recently declassified archives, the nephew of Alan Turing tells in full – for the first time in English – the real story of how Enigma was broken and celebrates the early work of the Polish codebreakers which lead to the joint efforts of the French, British and Polish secret services (X,Y and Z) during World War 2.

The book is published on September 1st, just before the centenary of Polish Independence in November this year.

There will be launch events at:

  • Bletchley Park (10th September)
  • The Polish Embassy in London (12th September).

You can hear Dermot Turing (Alan Turing’s nephew)  and Jeremy Russell (Henryk Zygalski’s nephew) paying tribute to the Polish Codebreakers in this short video taken at an event celebrating their role at the Polish Embassy in London.
