9781903365403: Enigma: Code Breaking and the Second World War

Enigma coded German radio messages were intercepted and decoded at Bletchley Park throughout the Second World War. The decrypted information was known as ULTRA and provided invaluable benefits to the allied war effort.

Despite Churchill's orders at the end of the war that all evidence relating to codebreaking be destroyed, many papers, including internal histories, summaries and copies of decrypts, did survive and are faithfully reproduced in this pack.

* Minutes of the meeting to discuss establishment of the new
* Government Code & Cipher School
* Polish contribution to cracking Enigma
* Turing's notes on Enigma
* Double agent TATE's disc code
* Hut 6 poem
* Operation RUTHLESS by Ian Fleming
* Admiral Donitz's message to U-boat commanders
* Churchill on the battle for Crete
* Letter from 'C' to Churchill
* Holocaust intercept
* German police signals traffic
* 'Be careful what you say' poster
* 'The Great Escape' decrypts
* D-Day decrypt
* Churchill's 'golden eggs'
