Loved The Imitation Game? then you'll devour a new book by 94-year-old Anne Glyn-Jones, who worked for Bletchley Park during World War II. -- Anna Britten Exeter Living Does this book add to the general knowledge of how the war was fought and won? Maybe a tiny bit - don't read it for that. It's real contribution is in understanding the social impact of the war, even for those serving in a relatively protected environment. It is a salute to the WRNS whose contribution is often overlooked. But mostly, like many personal memoirs, it is a tiny slice of history that is only important because of all the tiny insights that glitter in the detail. -- Lesley Mason The Bookbag Anne shows a spirited personality, a great sense of humour and a sense of the absurd; but she also vividly conveys the hard conditions under which she and her colleagues worked. -- Ralph Blumeneau Amazon.co.uk "I absolutely love Anne Glyn-Jones's book: freshly informative, eye-openingly vivid and often terrifically funny too. The sharpness that she brought to her incredibly demanding secret intercept work didn't let up away from the listening stations. From Plymouth to a really colourful and fascinating account of wartime Gibraltar, her voice is fantastically engaging and original throughout." -- Sinclair McKay, author of The Secret Listeners, and The Secret Life of Bletchley Park Endorsement "The important role of the WRNS in wartime is often unsung. The Wrens played a vital part in the Royal Navy's struggle against the Axis powers in the Second World War at Bletchley Park and elsewhere. Some lost their lives serving the cause. Anne Glyn-Jones has written a vivid, illuminating, and entertaining memoir of those tense and tumultuous days. It is an impressive achievement." -- Jonathan Dimbleby Endorsement "I am delighted that Anne Glyn-Jones, now aged 94, has been able to leave us this valuable contribution to the WRNS' history. Her bravery, tenacity and discretion are a shining example to younger women today wanting to make a contribution to society by serving those around them." -- HRH The Princess Royal Foreword
