Book Launch - The Secret Code-Breakers of Central Bureau

Author David Dufty and the cover of his book

The Code-Breakers of Central Bureau is a new historical account revealing a secret and little-understood side of Australia’s involvement in World War Two.

David Dufty describes how Australians built a large and sophisticated intelligence network from scratch, and how Australian code-breakers cracked the codes of the Japanese army and air force. The secret intelligence they gathered played a vital role in the battles of Midway, Milne Bay, the Coral Sea, Hollandia, and Leyte.

Come to the library and hear the story that prompted Australian war historian Dr Michael McKernan to remark:

“Who knew? This enthralling study tells a deeply human story. The men and women who gave our troops a significant edge in the fight against the Japanese are the genuine heroes in this engaging and exciting book.”

Where: Wagga Wagga City Library

When: Friday, October 20th

Time: 5:30pm

Cost: FREE
