Movie of the Month for May

Troops, your viewing assignment for the month of May is to watch The WWII Code Breakers That Saved America.

Shortly after 1:30 am on the 7th of December 1941, the Naval Intercept Station at Bainbridge Island Washington, intercepted a message from Tokyo, bound for the Japanese embassy in Washington DC. The message was in purple, the most secret and complex of the Japanese diplomatic cyphers. As tensions mounted in the Pacific, the importance of breaking the enigmatic cypher became all the more pressing. It would become one of the most infamous messages in history.

After you watch the documentary, email your thoughts and comments to me at denny@frontlinesoffreedom.com.  We’ll review it on the last show of the month.

  • I knew and read about the WWII code breakers and how instrumental they were in shortening the war in the Pacific, but I never knew that the Japanese code breakers also helped gather significant intelligence from the Nazis in the European Theater that also saved thousands of soldier’s lives. The lessons learned from WWII continue to help US intelligence today.
