- Enigma Family - 30 to 45 minutes [English]
Many people think of the Enigma as a single machine.
In reality however, there is no such thing as the
Enigma machine. Rather it was a family of machines, of which the
German Army version became the most well known one. In this lecture
we will take you on a tour through the entire
Enigma Family Tree
and show how the various models are related.
