This CD consists of a single very long page with hundreds of pictures. It reads like an illustrated book so you may just scroll down the page and read it like a book. You may also select specific topics from the CD Index below.

The German Enigma Cipher Machine was the primary device used by the German Military during WW-2 to produce what they believed were secure coded messages. This CD traces the development of codes, cipher machines, and the Enigma, its civilian and military models, its operation, strategies used to decipher its messages, and its mechanical and electrical construction and wiring. The CD also includes a 14-minute Enigma video, two excellent Enigma simulator programs, construction projects, a bibliography, two huge Enigma archival databases, copies of Enigma manuals and German military radio manuals, a German telegraph key museum, Photographs, Manuals, videos, and Simulators for the newly discovered Russian Enigma codenamed "FIALKA" and the American M-209, a 30-minute Training Film for the M-209, and an Enigma museum.

PREFACE AND HINTS ON USING THIS CD:

This CD consists of a single very long page with hundreds of pictures that reads like an illustrated book.

(You MUST ALLOW ALL THE PICTURES TO LOAD before scrolling down the page in order to be able to view every picture. This should take less than 10 seconds with a modern computer.)

The CD has an Index at the beginning followed by the main text and occasional Links to separate detailed and illustrated information pages.
(Click BACK to Return to the Main Page from these Links). The CD also includes a 14-minute Enigma video, a Bibliography, an immense database of the archives of the National Cryptologic Museum and another of the Lou Kruh collection. There are also: Enigma manuals, a book on WW-2 German Military Radios, a German Telegraph Key museum, an Enigma Museum, photographs, manuals, videos, and simulators for the newly discovered Russian "FIALKA" and the American M-209 cipher machines, a 30-minute M-209 training film, construction projects, and two Enigma Simulator Software Programs. These are all accessible by clicking on them in the Linked Index or clicking on the Links in the text.

HOW TO SPEED UP THE LOADING OF PICTURES: If you intend to use this material frequently, you may wish to copy the entire CD into a folder on your computer. This will speed up access to the photographs because they will not have to be loaded from the CD. Although it takes only 5-10 seconds to download all the pictures from the CD, putting them into your computer will reduce this to just a few seconds.

THERE ARE SEVERAL WAYS TO USE THIS CD:

AS AN INTRODUCTORY TEXT ON THE ENIGMA:
This CD may be read as though it is a book. It is a long page organized in a logical sequence of topics beginning with an Index and the history of codes. It progresses through the development of code machines, the Enigma, and other cipher machines. Instructions for making working code wheels are also included. The components of the Enigma are then described. How it works is explained, and how it was used and deciphered is covered. How it is disassembled is shown and additional sections include a bibliography, two unique and immense database archives, Enigma manuals, a book on German Radios, a German telegraph key museum, an Enigma museum, photographs, manuals, videos and simulators for the newly discovered Russian "FIALKA" and the American M-209 cipher machines, a 30-minute training film for the M-209, and two Enigma Simulator Software Programs.

I have tried to present the material in a logical order but you may prefer to read it in another order. For instance, you may prefer to read how the Enigma works BEFORE you read about the components of the Enigma. You may select the order by using the main index at the beginning of this page. The Index Links simply move you to the desired spot in this long page. (Remember to Click ''BACK'' to return to the spot where you left the main page.)

AS A DETAILED AND COMPREHENSIVE REFERENCE ON THE ENIGMA:
Since most of the descriptive material on the CD is contained in a single long page, you may use the Index to help you find general material. You may also use the 'SEARCH' or 'FIND' function in your browser to allow you to search for specific words and text related to the Enigma. You may PRINT the material by using the browser File/Print function. If you need high resolution versions of any of the pictures, you may contact the distributor, www.artifaxbooks.com or visit The W1TP.COM Enigma Museum - www.w1tp.com/enigma to find out how to obtain them.

AS A DETAILED SOURCE OF ARCHIVAL AND BIBLIOGRAPHIC MATERIALS:
The two huge archival databases contain a great deal of material on Enigma, Ultra, and Codes. The NSA/National Cryptologic Museum database is a 58 page listing of all holdings in their library dealing with those subjects. The 3200 item Lou Kruh Collection contains listings of important print and non- print sources and materials. Both of these databases may be searched and printed or simply browsed.

AS A SOURCE OF ENIGMA PHOTOGRAPHS AND DESCRIPTIVE TEXT:
There are over 1000 Photographs and Descriptions in this CD. Many pictures are displayed in the main text and links but there are several hundred more in the main and other folders. They are all .jpg files and you can view the unlinked pictures with any photo viewer program or by loading them individually into your internet browser URL address window. You may print or save individual illustrations in the text by right-clicking on them. If you need high resolution versions of any of the pictures, you may contact the distributor, www.artifaxbooks.com or visit The W1TP.COM Enigma Museum - www.w1tp.com/enigma to find out how to obtain them.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS:
I would like to thank and dedicate this CD to the mathematicians of the Polish Cipher Bureau, Marian Rejewski, Jerzy Rozycki, and Henryk Zygalski whose work provided the first theoretical and practical entry into deciphering the Enigma-enciphered messages. I would also like to acknowledge the thousands of people at Bletchley Park who refined and improved the Polish deciphering techniques, and those who risked and lost their lives recovering critical components of Engima keys. I would particularly like to thank the historians and authors of all of the cited references, the many contributors to Cryptologia, and Dr. Friedrich L. Bauer, Dr. Franz Pichler, Dr. David Hamer, Dr. Nicholas Gessler, David Kahn, Lou Kruh, Jim Oram, Paul Reuvers, Dirk Rijmenants, Lech Maziakowski, Gerhard Sulger Buel, Gunter Hutter, Klaus Kopacz, and John Alexander for their informative historical work. I would like to also thank the former Curator of the NSA / National Cryptological Museum, Jack Ingram, the Assistant Curator, Jennifer Wilcox, and the Librarian, Rowena Clough for the assistance that they provided during the years when I was assembling this material.

I hope you will find this CD useful... Tom Perera, Vermont, USA. 2006, 2014
