**Mathematical Analysis - A Book with a Story**

When I studied mathematical physics at Sussex University back in 1967-70 one of my math professors was Bernard Scott.

I remember his lectures well and I bought the course book, "Mathematical Analysis - An Introduction" - which was by him. That was that.

Then just recently, over 50 years later, I learn that Scott was one of the codebreakers at Bletchley Park during WW2. He broke the Soviet Comintern code in late 1943.

I still have his book, the very copy I purchased from the university bookstore on Oct 10, 1967.
