This is a 22 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War II - The Codebreakers of Bletchley Park. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Bletchley Park was probably Britain’s best kept secret. The secrecy surrounding all the activities carried on at Bletchley Park during World War II was of vital importance to national security and ultimate victory. An organization called the Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS) studied and devised methods to enable the Allied forces to decipher the military codes and ciphers that secured German, Japanese, and other Axis nations communications.
Bletchley Park ushered in the birth of the “information age” with the creation of the code breaking processes enabled by machines such as the Turing/Welchman Bombe, and the world’s first electronic computer, Colossus.
The Codebreakers made a vital contribution to D-Day in other ways. The breaking of the ciphers of the German Secret Intelligence Service allowed the British to confuse Hitler over where the Allies were to land. His decision to divert troops away from the Normandy beaches undoubtedly ensured the invasion's success.
Collaboration with the United States at Bletchley Park, not only turned the tide of World War II, but lasted through the Cold War and continues today. Bletchley Park is a treasured heritage site designed to preserve the important story of the Code breakers during World War II. But even as the Allied troops waded ashore, a new threat was looming and attention was being given to the role of the Codebreakers in the post-war era.
