Sources Work On The Enigma Machine.

1252 words - 5 pages

Question 1:Study source A. what can you learn about the work at Bletchley Park?We can see from the source that everyone was put into separate departments, 'we were very, very departmentalised'. The double 'very' emphasises how severely it was done. We can also learn that their work was very secretive and guarded, 'you never discussed your work with anyone except your little group'. The witness comments on how he 'hadn't a clue what was going on in the rest of the park'. We also learn that only a very few 'real high-ups' knew everything that was going on. This was intentional; it helped to keep any information from being and value to a German spy, which might have been planted at Bletchley Park. This was exaggerated by having to use tubes to send messages, forced by compressed air, from hut to hut. There are no weaknesses in this source. It is a secondary source but was written by an eyewitness.Question 2:Study sources A, B and C. does C support sources A and B about the work at Bletchley Park?Source C clearly supports sources A and B. Source A talks about the secrecy experienced in the Park, Source B comments on how know body knew what was happening, 'none of us knew quite what would happen next', and source C describes the war and how nobody knew whether their efforts had done any good. We can see how much the secrecy is emphasises in these three sources by phrases like 'should think' implying that they were not sure they just 'think'. Source A says they 'never discussed your work' which suggests that nobody knew what was going on everywhere, they were ignorant s to the results in any different department. This quotation is supported by one in C which comments on how they 'often didn't know the results' of their activities. Such care was taken because if the German's found out that the Enigma had been cracked, they would tighten up on procedures or change the codes and all the good work would have been lost. Therefore secrecy became incredibly important, as is illustrated in these three sources. No one was allowed into Huts 3 or 6 unless they were authorised. The source is a secondary source but by an eyewitness so is fairly reliable.Question 3:Study sources D and E. how useful are D and E in helping you to understand how Bletchley Park was able to break the enigma codes?Source D describes the work, which was done in Hut 3, 'they had to translate them into English'. This is a secondary source yet is an eyewitness account because it was written years after the work took place so that no one knew about it, it was written by one of the intelligence officers. The purpose of the piece is for the reader to reader to realise what the intelligence did. It shows us that the work was incredibly difficult. The source however, is very useful in showing us how the enigma code was broken. The source says 'every message was cross-referenced under one or two headings'. It was this that gave them the 'depth of knowledge' of whether something of a similar kind...
