The Bombe

The British have rebuilt the "bombe", a forerunner of the computer. That would be cool to see someday. Now that’s a piece of history. In the article they hypothesis the war would have lasted longer without the bombe. I think they are being modest – I’m not sure Britain would have survived the war without the bombe. And that might have changed the outcome.
