The history books still haven't caught up with reality.  In North Africa,
the Allies were apparently able to beat Rommel because Rommel emailed
his next day's plans back to Germany each evening.  But then the Allies
had to work hard to explain how they were able to beat the genius
Rommel w/o breaking his codes.
