I thought you guys might like this.... In conjunction with a French historian and publisher, I am currently researching a major RAF bombing operation which took place in Normandy days after D-Day in June 1944. We have conducted a few location field visits of the target area, and have located some nice finds of German origin. Major Panzer elements were targeted in this attack. The story starts with the secret code breakers of Ultra, based at Bletchley Park. This picture is a copy of the actual Enigma intercepted coded message, which was broken and translated, before being urgently passed to the relevant Intelligence agency, and London for evaluation by the War Office and ultimately Churchill... This Enigma intercept started a flurry of action and planning, before the execution of a major RAF bombing raid on German forces in Normandy. I will post more relating to this project for anybody interested in reading it...
