Yep, it's curious... might have to try to look into that.

Though sometimes I think that everyone and his granny was breaking the German cipher machines early in the war. Something about the unique British perspective on their achievements there... It seems it was less about intel gathering and cryptography, but more about the most roundabout way of doing it, which at the same time advanced man into the computer age because Turing was a nutty genius. If the British had stuck to the conventional combo of agents, intel and cryptography, they could have gotten there by a more direct route. The Swedes did.
