    Bletchley Park 'Ultra' was made possible because of help from Poland. The Poles handed a replica of the Enigma to Bletchley Park in August 1939. Without it breaking the code would have been almost impossible. In January 1940 Alan Turing became convinced that the Poles had misinterpreted the workings of the Enigma and, after meeting them, realized that he was correct. He then managed to crack the 'Green' code. In February 1940 John Herivel thought of the idea of putting himself in an

    The Work of Bletchley Park Source Based Bletchley Park was kept very separate. You only knew what you and your group were doing, and only the people with the higher ranks knew what was going on in the rest of the park. However the source does not tell me what year this was, or when or how long people worked on their projects. Also, the intelligence staff writing the source does not say anything about code braking; it was all kept very secret. I don't think the writer of source A would have

    The Work at Bletchley Park "You never discussed your work with anyone", from this we can gather that what went on at Bletchley Park was private, and was not ever meant to go out to the public. "I hadn't a clue what was going on in the rest of the park", we can see that even though everybody was there, presumably for the same reason, they weren't even allowed to discuss it within the larger scale ground. People kept to their huts, and were only allowed to discuss it with "anyone except your

It enabled them to decipher and then retransmit the obtained information received from the enemy to intelligence offices in London in the shortest amount of time possible, with complete co-ordination. The recruitment process was concealed. People targeted for recruitment would be taken away secretly and made to sign a form

    The Effects of Bletchley Park on the War Source Based It is believed that Bletchley Park helped shorten the war by one or two years. Some people believed it had a big impact on the war, some believed it did not. In 1939, just as Bletchley Park was setting up, not much code breaking was able to take place, so very little information was found out. From source B, it agrees that “nothing would happen” as war had not even been declared yet. People even believed that they “would all go back

    The Organisation and Work of the People at Bletchley Park The organisation and work of the people at Bletchley Park was very important this was because in the First World War code-breaking had become more important for the first time because messaging had gone more technical and opposite armies were able to get their hand on messages from the enemy quicker and easier. The British Government wanted to be able to decode all enemy communications so they decided to build a base that would house

    The Organization and Work of People at Bletchley Park Bletchley Park was a small estate 50 miles outside London. Bletchley Park, codenamed ‘Station X’ was an evacuation site for MI6 and the government code and cypher school (Gccs). This location was chosen, as it was far away from London that the Germans would not consider it a worthwhile target to attack. It was founded in 1939 after world war two had started and aimed to break encoded German Messages that were sent using ‘Enigma’. Station

The second goal was the mission of cracking the Enigma coding system which the Germans used to send the more vital messages. The first

    Scherbius invention was the most fearsome system in this time and famous now a days. Enigma machine had so many awsome components. The encryption came from this machine was very hard to descript. But after long time it was broken by the team at Bletchley Park. The Enigma machine is extremely a difficult but more useful cipher machine. It contains of a rotors, reflector, light board, and plug board. The machine came with a number of rotors, each of which rotor controlled a r... ... middle of paper
