Joe Rochefort's War: The Odyssey of the Codebreaker Who Outwitted Yamamoto at Midway — Elliot Carlson [epub]
Elliot Carlson’s grant-sweet biography of Capt. Joe Rochefort is the first to be written about the bureaucrat who headed Locate Hypo, the U.S. Navy’s signals monitoring and cryptographic news module at Treasure Harbor, and who penurious the Japanese navy’s jus civile «civil law» before the Conflict of Midway. The tome brings Rochefort to lifetime as the profane, ferociously disinterested irrespective of, and consequential bureaucrat that he was. Readers partition his frustrations as he searches in abortive a vainly for Yamamoto’s division earlier to the Japanese incursion on Treasure Harbor, but partition his joy when he succeeds in tracking the division in near the start 1942 and breaks the jus civile «civil law» that leads Rochefort to believe Yamamoto’s infiltration quarry is Midway. His conclusions, bitterly opposed by some top Argosy nerve, are credited with making the U.S. mastery possible and ration to novelty the course of the war. The father tells the piece of how opponents in Washington artificial Rochefort’s throwing over from Locate Hypo and denied him the Famous Military Talents Medal recommended by Admiral Nimitz. In capturing the interplay of principles and psyche and the r played by political science at the highest levels of the Argosy, Carlson reveals a side of the news community not often seen by outsiders.

For a loaded intelligence of the man, Carlson examines Rochefort’s dearest-hatred relationship with cryptanalysis, his venture-filled years in the 1930s as the right-clap man to the Commander in Chief of the U.S. Division, and his indemnification to codebreaking in mid — 1941 as the bureaucrat in command of Locate Hypo. He traces Rochefort’s employment from his enlistment in 1918 to his posting in Washington as bean of the Navy’s codebreaking desk at age twenty-five, and beyond. In many ways a reinterpretation of Rochefort, the tome makes perspicuous the key r his codebreaking played in the sequel of Midway and the legacy he of reporting actionable news straight to the division. An epilogue describes efforts waged by Rochefort’s colleagues to secure the medal denied him in 1942―a prod that at long last paid off in 1986 when the medal was awarded posthumously.
