My limited knowledge on WW2 codebreaking says that even though the Brits cracked the Enigma machine, there were still parts they had to figure out and this took months. I don't know how exactly it works, but read Sir Martin Gilbert's The Second World War and you'll see what I mean.

This link just may be a reference to a different code that the Germans used later in the war.

The "famous" Enigma machine had 3 "rotors". These message was encoded using a machine with 5 rotors, that's why they couldn't decode it.


That time will come, one day you'll see that i'll be dead and you will laugh!
