secret

secretAn “Enigma” machine used to send and receive coded German military messages during World War II. This machine, in a well-worn oak carrying box, still retains two original wax security seals.
Working with the Polish Cipher Bureau, British Intelligence reconstructed their own “Enigma” machine and began an intense code-breaking effort named, “Ultra”. Any information gained from the “Ultra” program was considered top secret and a conscious effort was made to use the intelligence sparingly so that the Germans would not realize their “Enigma” had been compromised.
