OXFORD, BRITISH UNIVERSITIES AND THE SECOND WORLD WAR

As the storm clouds of World War Two gathered over Britain, brilliant minds worked tirelessly at Bletchley Park to break the German Enigma cyphers.
With London under constant threat of bombing, many government and military organisations moved to Oxford, requisitioning College buildings and replacing the students who had left to contribute to the war effort with their staff. Many of the students who left were recruited by the Government Code and Cypher School, based at Bletchley Park.
This year’s Bletchley Park Week looked at the role played by these remarkable individuals, as well as how Oxford’s colleges and other British universities contributed to the Second World War.
