Unit 3 – Question 2

One interesting example I would like to introduce to the class is the cracking of the Enigma code by the Allied. The Enigma code was a military code, and it was used by the Germans and their allies. The Polish General Staff’s Cipher Bureau broke the German military Enigma in 1932. After that, the German continued to enhance the code. Thanks to the brilliant work of the British mathematician, Alan Turing, from 1939 to 1945 the Allied were able to read the messages from the Axis. t has been estimated that the efforts of Turing and his fellow codebreakers shortened the war by several years. What is certain is that they saved countless lives and helped to determine the course and outcome of the conflict.
