Release Notes
The American ENIAC is customarily regarded as having been the starting point of
electronic computation. This book rewrites the history of computer science,
arguing that in reality Colossus--the giant computer built by the British secret
service during World War II--predates ENIAC by two years.

Colossus was built during the Second World War at the Government Code and Cypher
School at Bletchley Park. Until very recently, much about the Colossus machine
was shrouded in secrecy, largely because the code-breaking algorithms that were
employed during World War II remained in use by the British security services
until a short time ago. In addition, the United States has recently declassified
a considerable volume of wartime documents relating to Colossus. Jack Copeland
has brought together memoirs of veterans of Bletchley Park--the top-secret
headquarters of Britain's secret service--and others who draw on the wealth of
declassified information to illuminate the crucial role Colossus played during
World War II. Included here are pieces by the former WRENS who actually worked
the machine, the scientist who pioneered the use of vacuum tubes in data
processing, and leading authorities on code-breaking and computer science.

A must read for anyone curious about code-breaking or World War II espionage,
Colossus offers a fascinating insider's account of the world first giant
computer, the great great grandfather of the massive computers used today by the
CIA and the National Security Agency.
