Dayton Codebreakers DVD
Early in WWII, Nazi U-boat wolf packs ruled the Atlantic Ocean, ruthlessly sinking Allied ships. After February 1942 their Enigma code could no longer be read. The US Navy took the problem to the engineer Joseph Desch and his team at NCR in Dayton, Ohio. Thousands of lives depended upon them.

With utmost urgency he secretly designed and, with the help of 600 US Navy WAVES, built machines to break the code. His work was successful for the rest of the war. His insight and skill would prove his ability and put him at the lead of the Information Age, but he would suffer because of his German heritage.
