In 1974 Frederick W. Winterbotham's book The Ultra Secret disclosed the Allied success in breaking the German high command ciphers in World War II, and a new form of history began-the study of intelligence and its impact on military operations and international politics. This guide documents and annotates over 800 sources that have appeared in the past 20 years. It examines and evaluates primary and secondary sources dealing with the role of ULTRA and MAGIC in the Pearl Harbor attack, the battles of the Atlantic, Coral Sea, and Midway, and the campaigns in the Mediterranean, Northwest Europe, the Middle East, and the Pacific, as well as in the realm of espionage and special operations. It also covers sources on the Sigint and cryptanalytic programs of the Axis and neutral powers.

It also provides details on sources concerned with Sigint and cryptanalytic programs of the Axis and neutral powers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
..."This unique work will have a wider audience than the title would suggest because signals intelligence, especially as manifested in ULTRA and MAGIC decryptions of intercepts of the German ENIGMA and Japanese Purple codes, was involved in many important battles and controversial issues of WWII. Sexton discusses these and related topics and provides excellent context in concise and informative abstracts to nearly all the approximately 830 citations.... For academic and research libraries."-Choice
"In this unique work the author...provides excellent context in concise and informative abstracts to nearly all of the more than eight hundred citations."-RQ
"A thoughtfully organized annotated bibliography of WWII signal intelligence divided into four chapters. Sexton has made a valuable contribution to the history of WWII, and students, researchers, and military and cryptology buffs will find it extremely helpful."-Cryptologia
"[H]istorians of the era who turn to it may find that Prof. Sexton identifies significant material overlooked in conventional bibliographical searches. In a number of cases, moreover, he draws attention to the broader impact and revelance of signals intelligence."-World War Two Studies Association Newsletter
"Signals Intelligence In World War II: A Research Guide is a welcome addition to this ever growing and important subject. Highly recommended and engrossing reading."-Military and BRAVO/Veterans Outlook Magazine
