Divers Find Nazi Enigma Device while Searching for Fishing Nets in Baltic Sea

British cryptographers cracked the code, helping the Allies gain an advantage in the naval struggle to control the Atlantic.At Bletchley Park codebreaking center, a British team led by Alan Turing is credited with unraveling the code, shortening the war and saving many thousands of lives.Shortly before Germany’s surrender in May 1945, the crews of about 50 submarines, or U-Boots, followed an order to scuttle their ships in Gelting Bay, near the Danish border, to avoid handing them to the Allies. Destroying encryption devices was part of the order.“We suspect our Enigma went overboard in the
