Constantinides: Bates "was manager of the U.S. War Department Telegraph Office and a cipher-operator ... 1861-1866.... Unfortunately only some four chapters are devoted to codes, ciphers, and cryptologic matters and to Union counterintelligence -- using deciphered messages against Confederate agents.... A historical gem is his description of President Lincoln's interest in the breaking of enciphered Confederate messages." According to Kruh, Cryptologia 20.4, this book is "a minor classic and an important resource for Lincoln biographers and Civil War historians."
