code breakingENIGMA & CODE-BREAKING IN WORLD WAR II - SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 10th at 1:30 PM

Pre-registration IS required! The enthralling movie The Imitation Game brought to light Alan Turing's deciphering machine, Enigma. The Enigma Machine, a code-breaking device used by British intelligence during World War II, provided significant information to the Allied forces that helped accelerate the end of the war. But the movie didn't tell the whole story of the creation of the machine and its contributors. Author and historian James Gannon will discuss the details left out of the movie, and the Enigma's effect on three major campaigns including the defeat of the German U-boats in the North Atlantic, the defeat of Romel in North Africa and the successful landing in Normandy on D-Day.
