    Description
    A Codemaker's War 1941 - 1945

    In 1942, with a black-market chicken under his arm, Leo Marks left his father's famous bookshop, 84 Charing Cross Road, and went to war. He was twenty-two and a cryptographer of genius. This book is his account of his time in SOE. Marks tells how he revolutionised the code-making techniques of the Allies, trained some of the most famous agents dropped into France including Violette Szabo and the White Rabbit, and why he wrote haunting verse including his famous 'The Life That I Have' poem.
