      Evan,

      Nice writeup in the newsletter about the Enigma. I have a fond
      relationship with Holland, as I previously worked there for 6yrs with
      Lucent. So I have some good buddies back there still. Also, my wife is
      from Holland.
      There is one book that I'm also fond of, as it's on the same subject ,
      WW II computers-perhaps you know of it already. But it's takes on the
      perspective of how electronic computers(instead of mechanical) were
      developed and the 'behind the scenes' look since the early 1900's with
      John Atanasoff and the way through to the 60's with Seymour Cray's
      designs. They now have a new edition for the 50th anniv of the computer
      which includes an extra chapter.
