  77. 77. 26. The story of this machine first began in the 1920s, when the German military began to communicate in unintelligible coded messages. The machine enabled its operator to type a message, then „scramble‟ it using a letter substitution system, generated by variable rotors and an electric circuit. To decode the message, the recipient needed to know the exact settings of the wheels. German code experts added new plugs, circuits and features to the machine during the pre-war years, but its basic principle remained the same. The first people who came close to cracking the German code were the Polish, who shared their information with the British, who in turn established the Government Code and Cipher School at Bletchley Park in Buckinghamshire. Mathematicians and intelligence experts, with the help of primitive early computers, began the complex and urgent task of cracking the eponymous code. Name the machine.
