The breaking of the Enigma Codes in WWII was one of the defining actions of the whole war. Many books have been written about this as one of the best-kept secrets of WW2. Few have looked right inside the Enigma cipher machine itself, but Inside Enigma does just that. Inside Enigma brings to life how the Enigma machines were used, how the messages were encoded, and why the Enigma code was virtually unbreakable. With more than 500 pictures this book explains exactly how these machines were constructed and worked.
Written by Enigma expert Professor Tom Perera, W1TP, Inside Enigma provides a history of these fascinating machines from their predecessors through to the cipher machines of the Cold War. The wartime Enigmas used by the German Army and Navy are covered in much depth, as is, the development of coding machines, into the post-war variants such as the Swiss NEMA, Russian Fialka, and American M-209. Readers will even find a guide to finding and buying their own Enigma machine and, if that fails, instructions to build their own modern-day version. Inside Enigma includes translations of original Enigma operating instructions and much more.
Inside Enigma is a comprehensive and copiously illustrated handbook covering the secrets of the Enigma Machine and the theory and practice of cipher machines in the 20th century.
