German Cipher Machines of World War II
 Picture
Publisher: Center for Cryptologic History (National Security Agency), 2003 Fort George G. Meade, MD.
Book. Book condition: Near Fine. Soft cover 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall "Along with breaking the Japanese diplomatic cryptosystem, usually referred to a 'PURPLE', probably the greatest example of Allied Cryptanalytic success in World War II was the breaking of the German Enigma machine. This cryptodevice was used by all of the German armed forces as the primary cryptosystem for all units below Army level or the equivalent. As D-Day approached, other German cryptodevices, the SZ-42 and the various T-52 machines, assumed great importance since they were used by the higher commands of the German armed forces. Many references to these German machines in the histories fail to provide information on what they looked like or how they worked. Another group of cryptodevices, those invented by Fritz Menzer for the Abwehr (Counterintelligence), have received little or no notice in the literature and are unknown to the public. This brochure is an attempt to remedy both lacks.." Illustrated. 31 pages. Book is in NEAR FINE condition. Paper wrappers; stapled binding.

Smith, Laurence Dwight  
Cryptography: The Science of Secret Writing
 Picture
Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company, Inc., 1943 NewYork.
Book. Book condition: Good. Fair to Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall First edition (stated). "Cryptography is a science older than the pyramids; yet in warfare today it is more vital in offense and defense than many modern weapons. The course of war might well be influenced by the silent battle between our cryptanalysts and those of the enemy. This new book is a systematic presentation of the basic elements of cryptography, with interesting and typical examples of method and procedure. At the outset the author makes clear the importance of cryptography to our armed forces. The fundamental principles of substitution and transposition ciphers are set forth, with detailed accounts of their most important off-shoots. Once these are understood, any of the hundreds of ramifications and variations that stem from them will be easily within the readers' grasp. Finally, there are the problems, with answers, which offer the student not only a practical application of his study but also an opportunity to evaluate his skill. Because it includes only essentials and avoids the merely esoteric, and because it presents these essentials in a straightforward, step-by-step manner Cryptography: The Science of Secret Writing is an ideal book for the beginner. Because it is written in such an enjoyable style and includes so many amusing examples, even the expert will find it interesting. Mr. Smith was in the Military Intelligence Department of the Army during the last war and after the ARmistice went to Europe with President Wilson's entourage as a member of the American Peace Commission." 164 pages with index. Book is in GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in FAIR to GOOD condition; large chip to rear panel; dust jacket is now in protective plastic cover.
