Throughout 2021, we will be sharing fascinating insights into Bletchley Park and Special Relationship – an 80 year UK-USA intelligence alliance forged during World War Two, that continues to this day.
We start our programme with this exclusive virtual event for Bletchley Park Friends and Supporters, and our first event of the year: ‘American Codebreakers at Bletchley Park, 1941-1945’
Join Dr. David Sherman, formerly of the National Security Agency, live from the US as he takes you through a secret meeting that took place at Bletchley Park in February 1941. Discover how it set the stage for the enduring partnership that emerged after World War Two, a partnership often called the closest and most important relationship in the history of intelligence.
