Dr Joel Greenberg (Bletchley Park Trust) – The Birth of Machine Cryptanalysis at Bletchley Park

In the early 1930s, the Government Code and Cipher School in the UK began recruiting mathematicians and other “men of the professor type” as the onset of war with Germany appeared inevitable.  Eventually, Bletchley Park was transformed into a hotbed of technological development and created a radically new production-orientated approach to machine cryptanalysis.
