On this day in 1941, the German armed trawler "Krebs"(!) was raided; the
Enigma itself was chucked overboard per protocol, but captured documents
(before they could be destroyed) helped to track the German Navy movements
for a few weeks.
PS: Am I the only one annoyed by Hollywood's rewriting of crypto history?
The Enigma box was captured by the British, for example, not the
Americans; Alan Turing always seems to be cast poorly; etc.
