Lorenz has been found! At least half of it!
German "code" machine from the era of the Second World War considered to be MUCH MORE secure than the Enigma cryptograph. Used the Germans for high-level secure communications as would be the case direct from Hitler to his immediate subordinates. Personal and of the highest priority! From A.H to . . .!
A portion of such machine [Lorenz} purchased from eBay on line auction.
"'Hitler's code machine' snapped up off eBay for £9.50 after discovery in Essex shed"
"Part of a covert code machine used by Adolf Hitler has been snapped up off eBay for £10 after being discovered in an Essex shed."
"Lorenz was a key tool in the use of strategic communications and was far more complicated than the highly publicized Enigma machines."
Lorenz a COMPLICATED contraption and apparatus as can be seen from the image of the assembled machine. You can see the keyboard/printer on the far right for comparison/scale sake.
WITHIN A PERIOD OF TWO WEEKS THE FAMOUS SWEDISH MATHEMATICIAN ARNE BEURLING ABLE TO PROVIDE A GENERAL SOLUTION TO LORENZ. A REMARKABLE ACHIEVEMENT!
Anyone know of a history of the Second World War based on decrypts of messages enciphered with the Lorenz machine?:
