So few know about this and yet the ramifications of it were astounding.
I have read on here how the 'British' should have done so much better because of 'Ultra' yet for a considerable time the Italians/Germans had just a good source.
I don't want to be a cynic or seem 'anti-American' but I can not help thinking that if it had been a British officer giving away American operations (with many dead) it would be much better known to say the least.
To be fair to Fellers I used to think he was an incompetent who was promoted afterwards simply to save American face-- but I have read accounts (how accurate I don't know) that he actually suspected his reports were being intercepted and asked to use a different code but Washington refused on the ground their codes could not be broken.
