During the first weeks of heavy fighting in Normandy, following ‘D’ day – Bletchley Park intercepted a message which enabled the RAF to take out the Divisional command headquarters of a very dangerous SS Panzer tank division – decapitating the command and control of the whole division along with it’s senior officers.

War is War.
