the end of Enigma
I am 100% Polish, and darn proud of it. I recently stumbled upon Marian Rejewski, a soldier in the Polish army. He is just one of the many Polish heroes of WW2.

His achievements jump-started British reading of Enigma in World War II ("Ultra"), and the intelligence so gained may have substantially altered the course of the war.
