Re: Partial truth, partial cover up ?

You can read about Admiral Dönitz desperation in his memoirs, but they never thought their special Enigma machines could be cracked.

Also, getting the germans to believe the bristish navy could detect the radar installed in the submarines helped, as they were made to emerge blind.

But really, the Enigma cracking was top secret for decades, pretending to believe that such a highly detailed cracking was faked decades after those alleged spies needed protecting makes no sense.
