Drawing of the Enigma Components

Drawing of the Enigma Components

Hitler intended that Germany's "Enigma" machine would help him defeat the Allies during World War II. 

However ... Alan Turing and his team at Bletchley Park - located not far from London - were able to build-on information initially obtained by Polish resisters to further understand how Enigma worked, then ... break its codes. 

When that happened, the tide of war turned against Hitler.
