Dr Baldwin, who has delivered over 700 presentations on WW2 Intelligence and related subjects, explores the fascinating story of the Enigma ciphers, which the Germans believed unbreakable. Nevertheless, the Bletchley Park codebreakers unravelled Enigma, and thus read several million German messages, providing reliable Intelligence. To exemplify the importance of codebreaking in winning the war, Dr Baldwin analyses the Battle of the Atlantic, a fierce conflict lasting nearly six years and costing over 60,000 lives. The evening ends with a demonstration of one of the few surviving Enigma machines, allowing members of the audience hands-on operation of this iconic device.
