Breaking the Secret ENIGMA Codes
Professor Tom Perera - W1TP
The German military used Enigma cipher machines to encode all of their important communications. The breaking of these secret Enigma codes is credited with shortening the war by two years, saving thousands of lives, and perhaps keeping Hitler from producing an Atomic bomb. This talk will explain in detail how the Enigma works and trace the fascinating history of the cracking of the Enigma Codes. The Real Story behind the ""Imitation Game"" movie will be explained.
